I'm having big problems getting a servlet to work.

I think I have taken the proper steps for getting servlets to work with
Getting there was a real pain because:
1: the documentation says that servlet support is compiled in by
default. Which is apparently not true.
2: my winnt computer doesn't have make
3: the gnu make which I downloaded doesn't work
4: after switching to linux (Redhat 5.0) I found that the makefiles are
So I manually compile the java files in the servlet directory and added
them to jigsaw.zip.
Off course the first time I add them to the zip file I compress them,
which off course doesn't work. ;-)
5: found out that none of the linux ports of the jdk's I tried is
capable of running jigsaw.
Back to windows nt.

But now I have:
 - jdk1.1.5
 - jsdk.jar from the javasoft servlet toolkit
 - jigsaw.zip 
in my path.

Run the server.
Run the jigadmin program.
Can't understand the bloody thing for the life of me. This is off course
_after_ reading the docs.
Then I found this message
which was a real life saver.

But now I get the same message as in Manuel Beche's post:

So, I'm glad I got this off my chest. ;-)
But my real question is: does anybody have any clue as to how to get
this to work?

feeling pretty frustrated,
