Thanks for your help.

I think something I don't understand is: what's its root of the virtual 
server's appbase?

I have tomcat (5.0.28) installed in "c:\Tomcat 5.0", with the usual set 
of directories
within that - bin, common, conf, logs, server, shared, temp, webapps,
work. I don't have a development environment at all. I have applications
installed within webapps, using the defaulthost (localhost) and they
work fine. Here's a sample of my server.xml:

<Engine defaultHost="localhost" name="Catalina">

          <Host appBase="webapps" name="localhost">
        <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
suffix=".txt" prefix="localhost_log." timestamp="true"/>
 <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"
fileDateFormat="yyyy-MM-dd" suffix=".txt"/>

      <Host appBase="webapps/some_host" name="">
        <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
suffix=".txt" prefix="some_host_log." timestamp="true"/>
        <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"
fileDateFormat="yyyy-MM-dd" suffix=".txt"/>

      <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
suffix=".txt" prefix="catalina_log." timestamp="true"/>
      <Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.UserDatabaseRealm"/>

I've created a directory within webapps called 'some_host' and within
that is a simple jsp, a 'welcome' script. I know that the server, and an 
external PC, know (from use of Hosts files) that is mapped 
to the server's IP address, and I can successfully ping that address. 
But I'm not getting the jsp to run! - I just get a 'page unavailable' 
response. There are no errors in the startup log so I think it must be 
that Tomcat doesn't know where to look for the welcome.jsp, which 
suggests that specifying appbase = "webapps/some_host" isn't working.
