If you are using vista 64 bit, do not use the windows installer/exe.

Instead unzip the tomcat zip file and then create shortcuts to startup and shutdown batch
file found under ../bin folder.

You will also have to install JRE 1.5.0. Tomcat complained about the JRE when I tried using
the 64 bit JRE

Resisting the temptation to answer "42", you should be aware that Tomcat is pure Java, so
any of the downloadable packages are acceptable for use on Windows (even the .tar.gz one).
 However, due to its flexibility, I would recommend the .zip package over the .exe, since
the .exe leaves out a few niceties.

Which version of Tomcat you want depends on the requirements of the webapps you wish to use
under Tomcat; nearly all webapps will run properly under the latest version (currently 6.0.18),
so that would be the usual choice.
