I downloaded Tomcat 6, unzipped it, set JAVA_HOME and ran the startup.bat on a XP machine.

Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to localhost:8080
Did you mean: localhost-­8080.­com

I then went into Windows Firewall and made 8080 an exception, but it made no difference.
Running a netstat -a | grep 8080 comes back with only a prompt.
What do I need to do to start 8080 to listening?

If this is an webserver for the outside to see make sure you have port 8080 opened on your router or port fowarded to your server's IP address.

If I understand you correctly, right now I would be content with just http://localhost:8080

I looked in the server.xml

 <Connector port="2011" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               redirectPort="8443" />
    <!-- A "Connector" using the shared thread pool-->
    <!--
    <Connector executor="tomcatThreadPool"
               port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               redirectPort="8443" />

If I use http://localhost:2011, everything comes up fine.

Actually only the index page comes up.  None of the links ever arrive anywhere.

Change port no. to 8080 and then try it..

Yes, i tried that.  The index.htm appears, but none of the links work after that.  I loaded Tomcat 5.5 on another machine and it works as the RUNNING.txt states without any bit twiddling at all.

I downloaded a fresh Tomcat6 after which initial install proceeded as expected.
