I had a heck of a time on linux setting up rc init scripts, due to 
something similar to this. My discovery (and unlikely this works on 
windows) was that in the bin/ directory the shell scripts search for, which by default doesn't exist. By bin/ for tomcat 
5.0.30 it suddenly worked, whereas manually adding JAVA_HOME and 
CATALINA_HOME to individual startup files always left something broken. 
Here is what I added, see if an adjusted version of this works:


export JAVA_HOME="/opt/jdk1.5.0"
export CATALINA_HOME="/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30"
