Hello,
I have installed Tomcat 6  (clean installation) and followed the instructions on http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Install_Tomcat6, but when I start up Tomcat I get the following exception:

Jun 1, 2008 9:56:10 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap initClassLoaders
SEVERE: Class loader creation threw exception
java.io.IOException: Invalid argument
   at java.io.WinNTFileSystem.canonicalize0(Native Method)
   at java.io.Win32FileSystem.canonicalize(Win32FileSystem.java:395)
   at java.io.File.getCanonicalPath(File.java:531)
   at org.apache.catalina.startup.ClassLoaderFactory.createClassLoader(ClassLoaderFactory.java:200)
   at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.createClassLoader(Bootstrap.java:173)
   at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.initClassLoaders(Bootstrap.java:97)
   at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.init(Bootstrap.java:206)
   at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:390)


If I remove the following line from line from catalina.properties, shared.loader=${catalina.base}/shared/classes,${catalina.base}/shared/lib/*.jar  tomcat will start up fine, but I can not use my Alfresco configuration files. 

Alfresco Enterprise 2.2, Java 5, and Tomcat 6.0.16.

Thanks.
