Tomcat (4.1.29) configuration

Am I correct in thinking that IDEA will automatically start Tomcat when I run a Web Module, if I have the 'launch server before debugger attaches' checkbox selected?

It seems to be trying, but it fails with the messages:

It seems that there is a problem finding everything needed to start Tomcat.

I've not tweaked anything in the tomcat server.xml -- is there anything I need to change? There doesn't seem to be anything in the IntelliJ TWiki.

btw, here's the command line IDEA seems to be using. Could there be a problem with the -D parameter surrounded in quotes? Maybe it should be -Dcatalina.base="..." rather than "-Dcatalina.base=..."?
