OK, I got past that problem, but now it doesn't like the space in my
JAVA_HOME environment variable path(C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_07).

  environments, right?

  If you're using JDK 1.3.x, you have to exclude the JCR block before
  Cocoon. Have a look at the "Choosing the blocks" section below on how
  exculude a block. Please note that some samples require JDK 1.4 or

 3) Build Cocoon by typing "build" or "./"
