   Q: I am getting a 404 Error, what does it mean?
   
   A: In simple terms, it means the server was not able to locate 
  -   the resource you requested. This can occur because of two

      reasons:
   
  -   One, the URL you typed was wrong or has a typo.
  -   And two, the URL you requested could not be resolved with 
  -   the current "docsBase". If you are trying to run your own

  +     a directory with a path part longer than 8 characters, e.g.
  +     C:\Program Files\jakarta, and run the "startup" script from
  +     a command tool after you have cd'd to the directory using

  +
  +      > cd C:\Progra~1\jakarta

  +
  +     If you cd using the long name it works fine, e.g.
  +
  +      > cd "C:\Program Files\jakarta"
