I'm surprised you haven't learned how to spell it by now: Tomcat, not

The CLASSPATH environment variable should not be set, and java_home
should be JAVA_HOME.  What values do you actually have set for them?
What result do you get from entering the following?

java -version

This usually means you've already got a service installed by that name.
Both the service name and the display name must be unique.  You may need
to delete the old 5.5.9 service.

Tomcat 5.5 works fine on JRE or JDK 6, so there's no point in backing up
to an older JVM level.

You might want to consider installing from the .zip version of Tomcat
rather than the .exe, since it includes a service.bat script that may
give you better diagnostic information.
