C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\bin>startup.bat
Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1
Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\te
mp
Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3

Two things to try:

1.) Disable friendly HTTP error messages in your browser so you can see if the server is responding with an error message or if, indeed, it isn't responding at all.

2.) Take a look at the log files in the logs directory of your tomcat install.
If it's not running, there should be something logged to one of those files telling you why.
