1) Does apache start? Or more importantly, does `apache -t` give
    a green light to your httpd.conf with a LoadModule directive
    for mod_jk? :-)

2) What's the exact directive in httpd.conf for JkWorkersFile ?

3) Make sure you're got your CATALINA_HOME environment variable
    set; then, in a command window, go to that directory and

    C:\tomcat\> .\bin\catalina.bat run

Note: that's "run", not "start" -- you should see the startup
process in that window, errors included. Send 'em to me off-list.

Yeah, sorry, more on that later after we get this running.. :-)
