Sounds *very* similar to mine (original Win98, Sun JDK 1.3.0_02 although I
don't think that matters if it's not even executing the startup script

I've got the usual config.sys entry to increase environment variable

  shell=c:\ c:\ /e:4096 /p

but Tomcat 4 is *much* less sensitive to this than 3.x was.

Grumble grumble ... Win98 is also the reason for tonight's release in the
first place .. the stupid OS interprets "/....../" type paths as the same
as an equivalent number of "/../../.." entries (one level per extra dot
beyond the first two).
