What can you do now? How about telling us:
how were you trying to run it? how did it fail? what error messages did you receive? how did you configure it?
If you post some more info we might be able to help you.
When i double lick the startup button in catalina irecroty it shwoing error like this
"Cant fine the file '-Djava.endorsed.dirs='(or one of its components).Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libralies are available."
So i set the classpath like this
then i run through the command prompt as "startup" then its opening another command window at the same time that command window is not appear.just show like this
"Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\jboss\jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\catalina
Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\jboss\jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\catalina
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\jboss\jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\catalina\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: c:\jdk1.3"
So how can i run catalina .....
I am also facing the same problem have u got any solution for it,if u have then please fwd it me it will be great help
Go to <JBOSS_HOME>/bin. Type 'run' (or 'run.sh' if you're on *nix). JBoss will startup with Catalina.
You can test it by putting a .war file in <JBOSS_HOME>/server/default/deploy.
when i follow ur steps jboss sever is running.When u type url in my browser i got this exception
Exception in browser

So how can i run catalina ...
That means it is running. You need to deploy a WAR file like the previous post mentioned. I haven't done it in a long time since I quit using WAR files with JBoss 2.6, but I believe you then have to include the name of the WAR without the .WAR in the url, or your application name.
Unfortunately, since the Catalina config is gimped now in JBoss 3.0, I don't know if you can ever get the root URL to point to an application.
Your WAR file should contain your JSP pages and servlets. There's documentation on how to set it up. Most people use Apache's Ant to create the war, as well as do all the other compile, build and deploy steps. Basically, it is just a JAR with a the "war" extension.
