Hi Matt,

I almost deleted your message, because today I was inundated by spam !

Not sure if you are starting Tomcat from the command prompt. I know that 
when you install on Win9x, you can get some funky errors. This is a hint 
from another site that I can't seem to get access to:

You may need to extend the environment space. Click on *Windows* Start 
button, then Run, then type sysedit. Add the following to the 

  shell=c:\*windows*\*command*.com /p /e:4096

Also checked out this URL:

Hope this helps !!
