I've done several installs on WinNT and Win200 with IIS and I can tell you
that it does work.  Without more details its hard to say what wrong with
your configuration but here are a few common problems.

1)  Make sure the isapi_redirect.dll wasn't corrupted by the download.  It
should 112Kb, if your using 3.2b6 or higher.
2)  Make sure the registry entries for the ISAPI redirector are correct.
I've done the registry stuff by hand I usually get it wrong.  Look for an
iis_redirect.reg-auto in the conf directory.  This file gets created for you
automatically.  Take a look at it to make sure the settings look OK and then
rename the file to iis_redirect.reg and run it to create the registry
entries for you.
3)  Step 8 under Configuring the ISAPI Redirector says to add the "Filter
Dlls" key if your using PWS.  PWS is a piece of junk web server that ships
with WinNT Worstation (as an aside, NEVER install this web server).  From
your email it looks like your using IIS from the NT 4.0 Option Pack.  This
server is sometimes refered to as the Personal Web Server to differentiate
it from the web server for NT Server.  Anyway, if your using IIS from the
option pack, don't create the "Filter DLLs" registry key.  If you do, the
isapi_redirector won't load.

Subject: It didn't work

Hi All

I'm trying to install tomcat on IIS4/NT4 but it just wont work, I've
installed all the needed files, performed all steps from the "TomCat IIS
howto" document found on the server but all didn't work. The ISAPI
filter in the Internet Service Manager alwayes gives me a red arrow
pointing down beside the jakarta filter. Could any one tell me how to
make it run??
