First, don't try to run JForum 2.0.2 and older with mysql 4.1. It will not work. I'm working to fix the problems. JForum will work fine with mysql 4.0.x and older versions.

I never tried JForum with Macromedia's JRun, but the error points to some faillure to find JForum's servlets. It is an option to you to download Tomcat and make a test?

what i realized is: if i unzip jforum into a subfolder than webapps, installation fails. it seems like installation scripts assume webapps is the directory. when i unzipped into jforum directory under webapps, installation failed. i moved everything into webapps, it started working fine. any thoughts on this?

I didn't understant. Can you be more specific? JForum does not rely on any directory to be installed.. You can put it in any place you want to put, considering that you correctly point the Servlet Context to the directory you unzipped it.

The HTML files and CSS are in the directory templates/default
