Tomcat4.1.29 Access forbidden

P: n/a
Hi, I've just installed Tomcat4.1.29 and it's my first time
configuring it from the scratch. I'm able to go to
http://localhost:8080/examples or
http://localhost:8080/tomcat-docs/index.html. But I have also created
a new directory under $Tomcat_home/webapps called test. Under that I
created WEB-INF and copied one of my old web.xml files over there.
When I try to access http://localhost:8080/test/ I get a message:
resource not available.

I did http://localhost:8080/manager/install?war=test and got the
error: "Access to the specified resource has been denied/forbidden".
What does that mean? In $Tomcat_Home/conf/tomcat_users.xml I have
this:
<user name = "Tomcat" password = "Tomcat" roles = "tomcat,manager"/>
(I'm not logged in to the machine as Tomcat but I think it has nothing
to do with it, right?)
When I try to go to http://localhost:8080/manager/list I get the same
error...

I appreciate your help.
