        Thank you for coming back.... we all have those days.... look, I 
run tomcat on NT, but i'm not the right one to solve the problem, your 
right, this was very hard to get working... I did, but never quite 
right, so I just run as development, and not as a service, and have no 
problems. Actually I run it a little on this laptop as well, and it runs 
good... Let's break this problem apart first; in this order, and let 
everyone try to explain..

1.    General Tomcat 3.2.4 on NT2000 or suggested Tomcat (best) for Win32..
2.    IIS and Tomcat
3.    Tomcat as a Service.....

    Thanks again for coming back, this just show the quality of the 
people who come to this group and are willing to help.
