Really basic Tomcat install question

I've installed apache-tomcat 5.5.27 on Window as a standalone app. I've added a log4j.properties to commons/classes and the jars for log4j-2.1 and commons-logging-1.1.1 to common/libs. I start tomcat from Eclipse Ganymede and there is no output on the console and the server does not respond. For example: http://localhost:8080/ returns a 404.

There is no log file and no indication of what is wrong.

I don't know how to figure this out without some sort of indication from Tomcat as to what is wrong.

Any help or suggestions appreciated,

Have tried starting the server manually using the startup.bat and then accessing the Tomcat home page on localhost?

Was the 404 a Tomcat generated one?
