Yes, Chuck, that part is clear.
Maybe I'm just starting like someone else, answering questions that 
aren't asked (yet). ;-)
What I meant was simply that, *had* the OP not downloaded a version 
already, but *had* he been wondering which version to download, and 
*had* he been considering the information in the on-line documentation 
wondering which version he *should* download, then it *would* not 
necessarily have been clear to him.
Which is, maybe, why he downloaded the source version rather than either 
the zip or service version in the first place.

So maybe we should ask to OP himself to indicate what was his ultimate 
aim in downloading a Tomcat for Windows : simply to run it as a service 
(in which case the "service installer" may be the better choice), or to 
run it also on the command-line, play around with the .bat settings etc..

By the way, as long as you're there and in a chatty mood, why are there 
two versions for Windows, and what would be the best usage of the one or 
the other version ?
