I installed tomcat 4.4.24 a while back and it works fine on the examples and the code from Murach's Java Servlets and JSP book examples. I'm trying to go through the book but using my own application. In the webapps directory I've created an rl directory which contains an index.htm file.
If I enter
http://localhost:8080/murach
in my browser, it works fine and brings up the index for the murach examples.
If I enter
http://localhost:8080/rl
in my browser, I get a 404 from tomcat (not netscape).
help!!!

Look at the ../conf/web.xml file - does it have a welcome-file element containing index.htm?
Also, in order for Tomcat to recognize a directory under webapps as a web application, that directory must have a WEB-INF subdirectory and a web.xml file.
