Tomcat 5.5.17 install; not loading pages

I have installed the JDK and Tomcat following the instructions from www.coreservlets.com and after starting the server, I can see the welcome page as well as all examples.  However, when I copy a html and jsp page, per the guide, into the webapps/root folder they will not load. I receive a 404 error when loading both pages.  I can java -version and javac -help from the cl and it works.  I have made the correct changes to the environmental settings, I believe.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks for your patience.

I used the Windows installer initally.  After it gave me the same results I did the following.

Uninstalled all versions of Java on Pc
Unistalled IIS
Uninstalled all references to Tomcat.
Installed Java SDK
Unzipped the archive to the c:\install_dir
The Tomcat examples work fine.

Ok, I have figured it out myself.  Unfourtunately the problem was so embarrasing I would rather not disclose it, but feel bad over the points.

No problem - we all make mistakes, its part of being human ;-) doesn't bring you down. If you could tell what the problem was, it would help other people who might have faced the same problem and who might come searching EE's knowledge-base for solutions to it.

CmouldingAuthor Commented:
Ok, against my better judgment.  :)     For extremely new users to Tomcat.  Users who are traditionally Windows bound, keep in mind, that Tomcat is developed by a foundation that originally targeted *nix solely.  File names, directories, and urls are CASE SENSITIVE.  So if this is your first adventure into a *nix born technology keep this in mind. Thanks for everyone's input!  :)
