Shiver me timbers, me cocky just fell off its perch.[1] Thanks Hassan, I 
love it when you talk command line. Yep I tried 'catalina.bat run' at the 
bin directory of tomcat and the reply was. " 'catalina.bat' not recognized 
as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file" I think 
version 5 is a lot different from version 4. I've tried to install both 
version without success. At different times but I'm trying to get the most 
recent one up. I appreciate your help and would still like further input 
from anyone. I'm determined to get the little blighter going.

For anyone else I'm trying without success at getting the server (version 5 
)running and opening the welcome page.

Thank you Brian Roberts
