By "the TC4 binary" do you mean the ZIP file or the new executable (.exe
file) that includes an installer?

The standard startup scripts work fine for me on my Win98 laptop ... the
"Catalina" thing is ignored and Tomcat starts just fine in a separate
window.  Further, I've heard lots of other people say they run Tomcat 4 on
Win98, and no other complaints about this issue.  Maybe there is something
wierd about your configuration?
