Hi there have you another service running on your port 8080 which of 
course is the default port.If so goto and edit (using your fav 
editor)your <tomcat-install>/conf/server.xml and change your port to 
anything above or greater than1024  as ports less than or equal to 1024 
will require superuser to access to bind (mine for instance is 6666)as 
mentioned in the README.txt /RUNNING.txt or Installation Files.

Thus Restart Tomcat 4.0.3 and change to the new port in the url i.e 

Plz correct me if I'm wrong wortha try.
