I think you just did, and it's not :-)

If that URL entered into your browser is getting no response, then
you can confirm it by using `telnet localhost 8080` to see if you
get a server prompt back. I'm pretty sure you won't...

Arrrr, forget all that wizard nonsense, matey[*1]; open a cmd window
(presuming you're on Windows). Change dirs to the bin subdirectory of
the directory where tomcat's installed; try to start the server in the
foreground using the command "catalina.bat run" and use that output to
determine what's (not) happening.
