Did you configure Tomcat to use port 82? I think 8080 is the default for a 
default install of Tomcat. Though what port you have to use may be determined 
by your local networking.

The configuration documents for TDS all reside in 
${TOMCAT_HOME}/content/thredds. Some default content should have been copied in 
to that directory automatically the first time you started up the TDS. So make 
sure that directory exists and contains a catalog.xml file. If not you need to 
make sure that the Tomcat process has permission to create and write to that 
directory. I don't really know Windows users/permissions very well but I would 
guess you might have to run it with administrator permissions.

Hope this helps,
