          Could you tell me what specific problem are you getting with tomcat installation? I am not a guru but may be I can help you out with running simple blazeDS application.

          If you have tomcat installed just put blazeds.war file into /webapps directory, and while creating flex project check "use remote object service " and select "Live Cycle Data Service" Option. your server would be J2EE in case of tomcat. then you can provide root Folder location pointing to blazeds installation "C:\Apache\tomcat 5.5\webapps\blazeds" (my tomcat is installed in this location). root url would be " http://localhost:8080/blazeds". This would create project. then there are tutorial available to configure different services. The simplest one for remoting is: http://western-skies.blogspot.com/2006/07/flex-worlds-simplest-example-of.html

          Pelase let me know if this is what you looking for.

            5) using below values to configure project:

              To me these steps are looking fine, did you change the server port for tomcat? as by default turnkey tomcat runs on 8400 and you are using 8080? another thing is context root is "/blaseds", it might be a typo just wanted to make sure though. because I get this error when either my server is not running or application is not deployed in the directory.
              You could check in output folder location that you have required code to run your application there.
