Hi Jeff --

We just got done tackling a 64-bit windows install, and we're writing
up a more complete doc, but have a look at this preliminary doc we
posted last week:

"TOMCAT 5 as a SERVICE under 64-bit WINDOWS":

It's not an installer, but it is all the steps we had to complete in
order to get the job done. Hope this helps!

If we skip the tcnative DLL, are we missing anything significant?
We're getting along without it for now...
