http://localhost:8080/examples/jsp/* or
http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet/* or
http://localhost/examples/jsp/* or
http://localhost/examples/servlet/*

system:
dell inspiron 4000
windows 2000 pro
jdk 1.3.1

Are you saying it is crashing your OS?
Or just displaying a blue page on your browser?

If the latter, then have a look at the HTML source as it may give you some clues.

i never worked with apache. but iam working with embedded tomcat in JBoss.
u check port u r using in the server.xml file which will be there at tomcatroot/conf/server.xml
in that file u will find one tag as
<Parameter name="port" value="8080"/>
this is the port that tomcat is running on.here u can change the port.
do u able to run the tomcat server alone successfully???
need some more details, so that i can help u.

found the solution from another mailing list:

"vsdatant.sys (from ZoneAlarm) does not get along well with
 Tomcat."

so i uninstalled ZoneAlarm and reinstalled TCP/IP and we're back in business now.  thanks anyway for all your comments.
