I'm using the supplied server.xml files due to lack of experience with Tomcat. So, what's going wrong here?

Hi,

Hmmm... If you have opened the RPM and just tried to start and this is the result, I would *strongly* suggest you to uninstall that RPM, go to http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat and download the binaries there, follow the few installation instruction and test. That will definitely work.
