Post the warning messages that you are getting.
I get the following WARN messages during startup. I have copied several jar files into the server/default/lib folder and managed to reduce the number of WARN messages but these still appear even though the jar files are present.
21:10:24,591 WARN [MainDeployer] The manifest entry in file:/usr/local/jboss-3.0.4/server/default/lib/castor.jar references URL file:/usr/local/jboss-3.0.4/server/default/lib/xerces.jar, which could not be opened, entry ignored

As near as I can tell, the castor.jar, and optional.jar files are REFERENCED, but not used by, the xalan.jar and crimson.jar files.
I have experienced some VERY STRANGE xml parsing errors, but everything seems to work alright without these files.
Are you having a specific problem, or are you like me, and don't like to see WARN: issues in you startup log, even though everything seems to work........
I discovered this issue, while configuring my login-config.xml file.
If I include the DTD in the config file, I get errors, and it doesn't work, if I exclude it, I get errors, but it does work.............Frustrating........
which version of the jdk? Have you tried jdk1.3.1_06? Also with early 1.3.1 jdks and red hat we also sorted some problems by doing
ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
It might be worth a try anyway.
I haven't proceeded very far past the startup. Aside from the WARN messages (which do NOT appear on my Win 2K install of JBoss) I cannot access JBoss using http://localhost:8082. I'm certain that this is due to the firewall configuration under RH 8.0. I explicitly specified no firewall in the install of RH 8.0 but when I check it via the GUI, the security is set to maximum and I cannot turn it off.
Personally, I'd rather not see the WARN messages on a clean install.
