install/configure/run jakarta-tomcat-5.5.2

I downloaded version 5.5.2 and unzipped it on my win2000 box. I created a TOMCAT_HOME environment variable and it points to C:\progra~1\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.2.
I have jdk1.5.0 installed with a JAVA_HOME env variable.
When I try to start tomcat using the bin\startup.bat, the dos window opens and closes immediately. It does not run.

What do I need to do to run TOMCAT?

thanks,
ipaman

o.k.! The solution was that I had to set CATALINA_HOME, etc. to my tomcat_home directory. I found this on the www.moreservlets.com page. Tomcat starts and Http://localhost:8080/ now opens the home page.

Thanks,
