Subject Re: New Tomcat install problem

Sorry, Nix. I personally know about it, but I was asking the original  
poster of this question what his JAVA_HOME is. I know that in Mac OS  
X, when you install Java 1.5, the binaries are installed in a  
separate location than Java 1.4. Someone mentioned that the Java  
version might be wrong, and someone else said something about a  
symbolic link-- All that should be fixed if JAVA_HOME is declared  

Thanks and good luck,
