The zip.

Hmmm ... I don't do that much on this box, so there's nothing too out of the 
ordinary. I'm running the Sun 1.3.0 JDK, and this is the original Win98 (not 
SE) with all of the current security patches.

My PATH is simply {jdk_dir}\bin, JAVA_HOME is {jdk_dir}, CLASSPATH simply has 
rt.jar (for Jikes) catalina.jar, and servlet.jar (the TC4 one), and 

I've rebooted just to make sure that the ENV variables get set globally. Other 
than that, it's a pretty bare-bones install. I just assumed that it was a 
standard DOS thing in Win98, but I guess I'm the only one seeing it. Is my 
setup pretty much the same as yours? Very strange ...
