awesome glad you got it working (and edit-the-file way worked ... not the redhat way ... hmmm; hehe)

ok lets see how to install tomcat, ... I've installed it on many slackware systems. I will say this, normally I'm a huge advocate of installing software from source but unless you're real familiar with the Java world your better off downloading tomcat as a binary. With redhat you have the option (I would imagine) of installing an RPM from tomcat's site (lots of info in these forums about how to install with RPM) but the way I've always done it is to download just a tarball binary, unpack it into /usr/local and start the server right up.

As for NTFS you can read it, you just can't write it. And whether your kernel supports Ntfs or not well easiest way to find out is to try and mount an ntfs drive and the system will tell you whether its supported or not.

what partition /drive is your NTFS on?

real simple, download a precompiled (binary) package probably in zip or tar.gz format (not rpm). Then unpack the tarball and move the resulting directory to where ever you want it installed /opt, /usr, /usr/local whatever. Then you're pretty much done. There might be some configuration to do but that's pretty much it.

I'm checking on pulling a link for you for tomcat 4.1 in tar.gz format.

depends ... one version of the tomcat binary will work with j1.3 and another needs j1.4. Not sure which though. Download it and see. download the tomcat file to /opt.
'tar -xvzf tomcat-...tar.gz'
'cd tomcat-...'
'./bin/startup.sh'

this should either start tomcat or tell you what is wrong and why it cant start, like defining JAVA_HOME, etc. Also I'm pretty sure theres a TOMCAT_HOME that must be defined as well. There will be instructions in the root tomcat directory.

good luck,
jpbarto
