I don't know.  Have you tried starting from a working configuration, and
making minimal changes until you've got what you really want?

1.  Unpack jakarta-tomcat-4.1.18.
2.  Start it, and browse to http://localhost:8080/
3.  You should see the "welcome to tomcat" page (index.jsp).
4.  Shut down tomcat.  Copy your index.jsp file into the
$catalina_home/webapps/ROOT directory.
5.  Delete everything from the $catalina_home/work directory.
6.  Start up tomcat; browse to http://localhost:8080/

What happens?

If it doesn't work, my suggestion is that there is a problem with your
index.jsp file.  Does that make sense?  It's all about subdividing the
problem space and thereby isolating where the problem must be.
