```Here's my batch file which sets the paths.

set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.1_02
set CATALINA_HOME=c:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1
set ANT_HOME=c:\jakarta-ant-1.4.1
set JBOSS_HOME=c:\JBoss-2.4.4
set
path=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%CATALINA_HOME%\bin;%ANT_HOME%\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;
C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\system32\WBEM

The locations of the intallations are confirmed to be correct umpteen times
when I was trying to troubleshoot.
Everything works EXCEPT log4j...
I'm using Log4j-1.1.3 on both my laptop and my desktop...
