Maybe first : on this list, it is recommended to NOT "top-post", but respond below the 
previous intervention.
See :   #6

(It just makes it easier to follow the conversation, and to see previous answers)

Ok then, the next things to check :

1) under the "webapps" directory of tomcat, there should at least be a "ROOT" 
sub-directory, and a "manager" sub-directory. Are they there ?

2) in the tomcat logs, after you start tomcat, there should be some clear message about 
the deployment of the manager application.
Something like :
INFO: Deploying web application directory manager

Do you see that ?
Does it mention any problem ?
