I've decided to start playing around with Tomcat & am having trouble installing it. I've downloaded it & SDK and do not understand this line:

* Set an environment variable JAVA_HOME to the pathname of the directory
into which you installed the SDK release.

How do I set this up? I don't understand this at all.

This depends on which operating system you are using. So if you can tell us that much someone here should be able to help you.

Below are the instructions from the Java Ranch FAQ for setting the CLASSPATH variable. The process here is exactly the same. Just replace "CLASSPATH" with "JAVA_HOME" in these instructions. The value of the JAVA_HOME variable is the path to your JDK installation.
Instructions on Setting the CLASSPATH on different Operating Systems
For Windows XP/2000/NT

* Open the System Properties window (by right-clicking on My Computer and selecting Properties, or through the Control Panel - Start -> Control Panel -> System).
* On the Advanced tab, click the Environment Variables button.
* On the Environment Variables windows, if a CLASSPATH variable is already defined, then select it and click Edit. If one is not defined, then click the New button.
* On the User Variable window, the variable name should be CLASSPATH. Set the value as appropriate. See the description of the value at the top of this page.
