Since you apparently just started with this, may I make a recommendation 
that will probably save you a lot of grief later ?
De-install your Tomcat, using the same very convenient installation 
package, and re-install it with the same convenient package, but to a 
directory without spaces in the names, like C:\Tomcat6.
The Service and so on will work just as well, but this will at the very 
least save you a lot of quoting, and at best avoid spending time later 
figuring out why this or that doesn't work as you expect.
