You would get this error if the ROOT webapp did not get created.  What's in the
"..\build\tomcat-4.0\webapps" directory?  You should see folders for ROOT,
examples, manager (if you are using a recent nightly distribution), and webdav.

One thing to remember ... you have to do the build from the top-level Tomcat 4.0
source directory in order to end up with a complete Tomcat 4.0 that includes
Catalina, Jasper, and the included webapps.  For me, that means (on Linux):

    cd /home/cmcclanahan/Jakarta/jakarta-tomcat-4.0
    ./ clean

and I end up with a completed build in


(which I normally set my CATALNIA_HOME environment variable to point at so that
I can start and stop it from anywhere).
