How do you "install" tomcat 5.0.28? I went to jakarta site URL http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi and I could see was 3 zip/tar files one each under Core, Deployer and Embed sections.I downloaded all 3 zip files and unzipped them. Is there anything else I need to do? I can go to bin directory and double-click startup.bat and the server starts.Is there anything else I need to do in order to make the Tomcat work smoothly without any problem? Thank You.

I ran startup command from command window after replacing start with run and I get following error :-

Ben,I did that after reading your posts. I can start the server from the command prompt but cannot start from the service.It always shows the status as stopped.

I got it started through service as well. The jvm.dll path was incorrect previously under java tab of the Apache/Tomcat properties window.I don't know how it took that path but after correcting it,it works fine. Thanks Ben for your help!!I am fine for now!!
