this is normal, you have to hit Ctrl-c to kill the console

Have you set your JAVA_HOME to point to where you installed the j2se? I think it cannot find the tools. If not download the j2se from here http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html and set your JAVA_HOME appropriately.
Thanks for your help. I re-installed the proper JDK and modified the run.conf file to point to the root directory and now I am able to load the /JMX-console/index.jsp page.
Now it seems to be working I have a few of more questions. I hope they will be answered in the documentation but here they are.
How do I change the setup so it starts using port 80 so I can drop the :8080 at the end of the domain name in the URL?
Where do I put the .jsp files I develop? I searched for the /JMX-console/ directory in hopes that would lead me to the "wwwroot" but a search turned up two /JMX-console/ directories.

You can deploy standard .war files. The structure of a war file is pretty standard. /deploy is where they go as well as everythiing else you want to deploy. Look into jboss-web.xml and the other .xml files that are jboss specific. If you are looking for an example checkout nukes. The installer is a standard web app. And the nukes project contains all of the standard deployment types, these can be used for examples. see http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=html&op=userdisplay&id=developers/projects/nukes/index for more info
