The usual problem is starting with the Windows .exe download of the
Tomcat core rather than the .zip or .tar.gz version.  The .exe download
creates a directory structure not compatibile with the one that expects.

If you have already installed the .exe version of the Tomcat core and
want to keep using it, you can copy the unzipped admin files to the
proper locations with the following.  If you unzipped admin into C:, it
will have created a directory structure starting at
C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.20; take everything under that location and
drag/drop it into "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat
5.5" (that's where the .exe puts things by default).  You'll get a
couple of overwrite warnings, and it doesn't matter how you answer them
as long as you don't click cancel.

After that, all you need to do is update conf/tomcat-users.xml with an
appropriate userid and admin role.
