Hi, how nice. You have something to look forward to if you
take the time to read a little bit. :)

That shouldn't be a problem at all.

Downloading Tomcat 3.2.1 would be a nice idea. You should go for the
.zip-file.

If you download the Tomcat 3.2.1 zip-file and extract it to a folder you
will find a doc-folder with the information you need. But beware - there's
one tricky little thing which might confuse you, namely the limited
environment-space in windows-shells. This results in some
not-so-easy-to-figure-out errormessages when trying to start Tomcat the way
the Tomcat documentations describes. You could, if you like, adjust the
environment-space on your system and reboot and stuff, but there's a simpler
way I learned earlier on this list. There's a Tomcat-launcher called JustGo
you could get from http://www.geocities.com/jdrudnicki/ which makes starting
Tomcat painless.

Good Luck!
