To change the working directory to C: type C:\ and press enter in the command 
prompt (if my memory doesn't betray me - my Windows days are long gone). Your 
steps to start tomcat seem be correct but paths and names in the description 
of environment variables are a mess (JAVA_HOME should have  the "_", 
"SystemRoot" instead of "stemRoot", C: must be followed by a "\" in paths, 
there is a "-" instead of a space between "jakarta-tomcat" and "4.1.12" in 
the standard distribution, at least on Linux). I attribute this chaos to fast 
typing but I'd double check if I were you. My Windows experience taught me to 
avoid spaces in paths also.
