Best done with an example - here's a snippet of my startup script for
one of my Tomcat instances.

-- snip --
set JAVA_HOME=C:\java\jdk1.5.0_04
set CATALINA_HOME=C:\java\Tomcat50
set CATALINA_BASE=c:\cattery\bodington2
start catalina run
-- snip --

CATALINA_HOME is where the Tomcat distribution is placed.  CATALINA_BASE
is where your instance files are stored - conf, logs, temp, webapps and
work directories should be under here.
