Subject: Help Getting CGI to work on Tomcat 4.0.4

I cannot get a cgi script to work.
I am running Win2000, my install is at
D:\java\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4  and the demo apps work
as well as other JSP stuff I have done lately.

%CATALINA_HOME% is D:\java\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4

I have placed a CGI application at
%CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY\WEB-INF\cgi

I have renamed
%CATALINA_HOME%/server/lib/servlets-cgi.renametojar
 --to--
%CATALINA_HOME%/server/lib/servlets-cgi.jar

I have found and un-commented the
"Common Gateway Includes (CGI) processing servlet..." block
in the file
%CATALINA_HOME%\conf\web.xml
and even placed that block (only that block) in
%CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY\WEB-INF\web.xml

I restarted Tomcat and tried both
http://localhost:8080/STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY/cgi-bin/myProg.cgi
as well as
http://localhost:8080/STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY/cgi-bin/index.html
The requested resource (/STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY/cgi-bin/myProg.cgi) is not
available.
The requested resource (/STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY/cgi-bin/index.html) is not
available.

I can find no other documentation that tells me what I can do
in addition to what I have done.

Can Anyone suggest what I need to do?
Anyone had success with this?

Thanks,

=====================================================
PS:  Here is the actual text of the CGI block
	for each web.xml
FILE: %CATALINA_HOME%\conf\web.xml
FILE: %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\STOCKPHOTOGRAPHY\WEB-INF\web.xml
  ...etc...
  <!-- Common Gateway Includes (CGI) processing servlet, ...
   ..etc ... -->
  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>cgi</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>org.apache.catalina.servlets.CGIServlet</servlet-class>
    <init-param>
      <param-name>clientInputTimeout</param-name>
      <param-value>100</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
      <param-name>debug</param-name>
      <param-value>6</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
      <param-name>cgiPathPrefix</param-name>
      <param-value>WEB-INF/cgi</param-value>
    </init-param>
     <load-on-startup>5</load-on-startup>
   </servlet>

END OF ps.
