With Windows NT/2000/XP (I had no problems with XP) it is very easy:
Get the product here:
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html
Install it. Important tip: Simplify the name of the directory where it gets installed. I call it C:\Tomcat4
Then you have to set two System variables in Settings/System / System (I dont use english ms-versions, so wording might be slithtly different. Click System Item near to where you deinstall software. There you click tab environment.
Enter two variables:
JAVA_HOME --> The path to your JDK2 (in my case its C:\jdk1.3)
CATALINA_HOME --> The path to your Tomcat root.
In my case its C:\Tomcat4
(Tomcat 3.x is similar. It only uses TOMCAT_HOME as second variable. So you might run both on one maschine.
Then you have to reboot your computer (the two variables are not set otherwise).
To start Tomcat I allways use the Dos-Command window and not the icons.
Go to tomcat\bin directory and type startup.
Open your browser. Type http://127.0.0.1:8080
You should see something.
JUST SAW THAT THERE IS A EXPLANATION OF RANCHERO ASHIK IN TOMCAT_FORUM: http://www.javaranch.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=56&t=000036

If you use Windows95/98/ME change your OS to something more decent or try to follow this one:
