I am installing tomcat5.5 on laptop which has windows 7

When I check "C:\Program Files", thats where this tomcat application is installed. So is this the home directory for tomcat or home directory is different from this dir ?

1) If I want to set CATALINA_HOME variable, do I provide path as "CATALINA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5"

2) If I did not know that tomcat is installed in Program Files directory, how can I find out where is this application installed ? Is there a command line tool available to check this ?

3)Can I check in the event viewer about this ? I tried but could not find anything in there .

Thanks

downloaded tomcat5.5 from "http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi"

Run it and follow the instructions in the wizard.

If I did not check, what dir is it being installed into, what is the way to find out what dir is it installed into ?

There are several distributions of Tomcat on that page. Which one you have downloaded?

I have downloaded tomcat5.5, windows services installer under "core"
This always confuses me , which one shall I download. So is this the one I have to download or different ? I tried downloading zip (pgp, md5) under core, but not sure what went wrong.

When I run windows services installer it creates "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation" path.

Is this installation dir for tomcat or is it "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\classes" as thats where class files are kept for java class files to be run using tomcat ?

Thanks
