Can anyone help me?

I downloaded tomcat-5.5.7 and jdk1.5.0_01. And I already set JAVA_HOME and Classpath.

JAVA_HOME= C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_01
Classpath=C:\mydownload\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\ ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_01;.;C:\mydownload\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\mydownload\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\common\lib\jsp-api.jar

When I try to start tomcat server, it seemed to start, but after two seconds, it disappear. From the dos wondow, I get the  error message: java.net.BindException: Address already in use: JVM_Bind ....

My PC O.S. is Windows XP, and has firewall installed.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

something else is already listening on the port tomcat is attempting to listen on.
try changing the port number that tomcat listens on jn server.xml

Also check that somehting is not already running on port 8080, either a previous version of tomcat or another web/app container like Resin or JBoss

Also check that the tomcat has permission to access the internet in the windows firewall.
