This is a know issue with the way that the JVM tries to deal with code in the
"crimson" XML parser.

In the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps directory, do you see "ROOT", "examples",
"manager", and "webdav" directories?  If not, then you haven't finished all the
steps needed, because there is no default webapp available.

What I normally do is execute this from the top-level directory of the source


which will build and install Catalina, Jasper, and the webapps into directory
"../build/tomcat-4.0".  You should be able to run successfully from there.
