Regarding (1), there doesn't seem to be a way to see all errors at once. Please consider filing an enhancement request at http://www.netbeans.org/community/issues.html.

NetBeans provides an error stripe to the right of the editor's scroll bar and refers to the whole file and not just the visible portion. Double-clicking on an error icon will scroll the file to the line containing the error.
Regarding (2), can you try alt+F1.

You can view the available keyboard shortcuts for NetBeans 5.5 by invoking
'Help | Keyboard shortcuts' menu item. As per the the documentation, Alt-F1/Shift-F1 are the shortcut keys for display/search javadoc.

Regarding (3), yes, the output window captures the console output from running programs.
Please refer to:

From the documentation:
You can add startup switches to the IDE on the command line or by entering
them in a special file called netbeans.conf, which is located in the etc
folder. You can enter IDE-specific startup switches and pass arguments
directly to the JVM in which the IDE runs.
For example, to set the -Xmx (maximum heap size) for the JVM in which the
IDE runs, either add the line -J-Xmx64m to your netbeans.conf file...
In general, catalina home should refer to the directory where tomcat is installed. For NetBeans 5.0, it would be something similar to:

As per http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.0-doc/appdev/deployment.html:
The description below uses the variable name $CATALINA_HOME to refer to the directory into which you have installed Tomcat 5, and is the base directory against which most relative paths are resolved. However, if you have configured Tomcat 5 for multiple instances by setting a CATALINA_BASE directory, you should use $CATALINA_BASE instead of $CATALINA_HOME for each of these references.

In the IDE, can you try selecting the radio option that lets you set the base directory?
You would do so by adding the library via Tools | Library Manager and then adding the library to the project by right-clicking the Libraries node of the project and selecting 'Add'.

Have you checked out the tutorial at:

For jdbc, the following link provides a simple client to mysql:
Can you try adding the jar to runtime-library set as well? Create a library using the library manager, right-click libraries in the project window and select 'add library...'
Select the JFrame in the designer window.
Select its properties window.
If it is not visible, right-click on the jframe and select properties.
Move to 'Code' tab in the properties window.
Check 'Generate Center' checkbox to center the frame.
Check or uncheck 'Generate position' and 'generate size' as needed. (when you select these fields, a short description appears at the bottom of the properties window that briefly describes the property).

Does that help?
