where is your driver stored in the file system?  Try both the /lib directory
and the webapps/[webappname]/WEB-INF/classes directories, and make sure your
classpath points to both.  And check your classpath for spaces in the path.

Good luck.

Subject: Problem running Tomcat 3.2 as a service on Win2000

I have a servlet that connects to a database. When I have tomcat running
from the batch file (tomcat start) the servlet runs fine and connects to
the db.  When I install tomcat as a service I get a ClassNotFoundException
saying it can't find my JDBC driver.  My driver is contained in a jar file
with the classpath set correctly.  Any ideas on how to fix this?
