Cannot log in to tomcat admin

Hi all, I got tomcat working ok then installed the admin package, i put apache-tomcat-5.5.16-admin/apache-tomcat-5.5.16/server/webapps/admin into /usr/share/tomcat/server/webapps/admin and apache-tomcat-5.5.16-admin/apache-tomcat-5.5.16/conf/Catalina/localhost/admin.xml into /usr/share/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost, set the user/group on the folders/files tomcat/tomcat, added an admin/manager tomcat user but i have a problem, when i go to http://localhost:8080/admin and put a wrong password in i get invalid password (ok so far) then i put in the right user/password and it just stays on the same login page, if i try again/refresh i get:
HTTP Status 404 - /admin/j_security_check

type Status report

message /admin/j_security_check

description The requested resource (/admin/j_security_check) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.16
If i try http://localhost:8080/admin after that i get the "Tomcat's administration web application is no longer installed by default. Download and install the "admin" package to use it." page.

What i could have done wrong?

Any help greatly appreciated.
