It's hard to tell with this little info but is there any chance there is already something running on the corba name service port (normally 1050 I think)?  If you aren't using corba you could also try disabling the orb and corba  nameserver gbeans.

I didn't think we started corba by default.... has something changed?

  I just wanted to start Geronimo, but I can not start it anymore.
I also tried this way.
(1) rename geronimo-tomcat6-jee5-2.0.2 dir to old-geronimo-tomcat6-jee5-2.0.2
(2) unzip to geronimo-tomcat6-jee5-2.0.2 dir
(3) start geronimo again, but I still can not start it.
  This is serious problem for me. How can I solve this problem?
