John,

I have tried your suggesions but I think the problem is the path to Tomcat.

I am using Windows XP and the command promp automatically defaults to
C:\Documents and Settings\Go For It  Web Design>, it doesn't recognise
C:\ as a valid command. How can I get around this as Tomcat is installed
under C:\Tomcat?.

Rocket
p.s. the logs for Tomcat were empty
