Subject: Pleae, Please help with the install of Tomcat!

I am new to the list.  I just downloaded Tomcat 3.2.1. and have little idea
in terms of how to install it. I did manage to unzip the file and put them
all together under the directory jakarta-tomcat 3.2.1. However, when I
startup the server, I got an error message:

"You must set JAVA_HOME to point at your Java Development Kit installation"

I found "Tomcat - A Minimalistic User's Guide" is not clear enough to help
me.  Can someone perhelps show me a bit details?

According to the Guide:

"On Win32 you should type: "set TOMCAT_HOME=foo\tomcat". Set the environment
variable JAVA_HOME to point to the root directory of your JDK hierarchy,
then add the Java interpreter to your PATH environment variable."

So I added these lines to my autoexec.bat "following" the above guide.


But I get it work. Is there something wrong?

Thanks a lot,
