Hi Richard,
CATALINA_HOME  variable should always contains basic tomcat instalation
so u should set this variable to ur tomcat instalation  directrory.

eg:If i installed tomcat 6.0 in c:\tomcat 6.0,then we should set catalina
home as CATALINA_HOME=c:\tomcat 6.0

what u have done wrong is,you added extra folder conf.
you have installed ur tomcat in c:\Tomcat6\apache-tomcat-6.0.14 directory.
so ur catalina is CATALINA_HOME=c:\Tomcat6\apache-tomcat-6.0.14 directory.
