Hello Patrick,

That ran and I could see the output which I have pasted below.

C:\Programs\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src\dist\bin>catalina run
Using CATALINA_BASE:   C:\Programs\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src\dist\
Using CATALINA_HOME:   C:\Programs\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src\dist\
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\Programs\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src\dist\\temp
Using JAVA_HOME:       C:\j2sdk1.4.0
Exception during startup processing
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina
        at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(

It cannot find the catalina.class file that is present in the catalina.jar
within the dist/servers/catalina.jar file. Can you help me out.
