Thanks for the feedback. As far as I know I had it working. But today I
decided to re-install Tomcat. Now I'm wondering if it was done correctly. 

The old path to Tomcat (in XP):
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0
The new path

I decided to re-install because my OS has issues with the spaces in the
path, and me having issues with having to click so far to get to the webapps

I checked to documentation. As far as I can see I do not have to do anything
to get Tomcat configured again. is still in the bin directory of Apache. was placed in a different directory, that was not changed
Tomcat's server.xml has not "mod_jk" configuration.

Am I correct in assuming I need not configure anything?
