Thanks, Giacomo!
Got cocoon2 working with Tomcat 3.2b8 (bin) as well with JRun 3.0!
Here are the instructions that should be in the installation docs
as well. Maybe you can add them ;)

Tomcat 3.2b8(bin) under Windows:
  Replace the jaxp.jar and the parser.jar from the lib
  directory with the xerces_*.jar that comes with cocoon2.
  Add an entry to the bin/tomcat.bat in the :staticClasspath
  section right after the jaxp.jar entry for the xerces_*.jar
Tomcat 3.x under linux/unix:
  no modification should be necessary

JRun 3.0 under Windows:
  Replace the jaxp.jar and the parser.jar from the lib/ext
  directory with the xerces_*.jar that comes with cocoon2.
  Copy the tools.jar from jdk to the same lib/ext directory.
  Select "Webapplications" from JMC menu and choose "deploy".
  Usually "ApplicationName" should be "cocoon2" and the
  "Application URL" "/". Then select the cocoon.war file
  and hit "deploy". You also need to adjust the classpath
  for your server! Go to your server's (usually "JRun Default")
  "Java Settings" and add an entry to the classpath:


  Now you need to restart the server. Voila!

The only strange thing about JRun 3.0 is that I cannot see the
/cocoon page! All the samples work just fine but when accessing
/cocoon I get an exception as follows: Cannot read directory from

Sounds like cocoon doesn't recognize that this is not a real file?!
