What is the entire stack trace?  What does *your* web.xml file look like,
particularly around line 25?  The web.xml you quoted in your message is
the standard one in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml -- you should not be
modifying that file.

This sounds a *lot* more like an XML validation error in reading your
web.xml file than it sounds like a class loading problem.  (In particular,
remember that Tomcat 4 does a validating XML parse, so youre web.xml has
to conform to the element ordering requirements of the DTD.

Messing with the CLASSPATH, or moving JAR files around, is not going to
have anything to do with this if you have a syntax error in web.xml.
