I am new to liferay and having a very hard time so far. I follow the documentation and having issues, please help.

1. Upgraded my Java version to 1.5.0_09 and I set my JAVA_HOME system variable.My CATALINA_HOME is set to D:\apache\Tomcat-5.5.20.
2. Downloaded liferay-portal-tomcat-jdk5-4.1.2.zip and extracted it to d:\liferay
3. Started d:\liferay\bin\startup.bat

Got the following exceotion

looks like your catalina_home isn't pointing to the liferay install.
i typically do not need to specify catalina_home in my env variables.
