Awesome. In the meantime, if you open Services after XAMPP is installed, I did notice (after running the Tomcat install service) that Tomcat is listed and (at least in WinXP) can be set for automatic. I have _not_ tested it without logging in; however, I have the CPv3 in my StartUp folder, and when I log in to my computer, Tomcat is eventually changed to "running" on ports 8005, 8009, and 8080.
So far, I am enjoying learning PHP, look forward to learning Java, and plan to set this environment so that ASP 3.0, ASP.Net, and (eventually) ColdFusion will all work together.
Thank you for your wisdom.
PS. I'll try CPv3.0.11 at a later date. I'm kinda stoked about getting some CODING done.
