Default Several Tomcat Installations on the same machine

I need to have Tomcat 4, 5 and 5.5 installed on my computer but I don't need to be able to run them at the same time. Is there anyone who knows what needs to be done to install three versions of Tomcat?

I made an ugly solution but it's perfect for me because I don't switch between the Tomcat Version that often.
I have a .reg file for every version that I run before starting a specific Tomcat Version.

It's named tomcat50_env_variables.reg and contains the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Environment]
"JAVA_HOME"="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.5.0_10"
"TOMCAT_HOME"="C:\\Program Files\\Apache Software Foundation\\Tomcat 5.0"
"CATALINA_HOME"="C:\\Program Files\\Apache Software Foundation\\Tomcat 5.0"

So it just sets the environment variables for a specific version. Not that nice but it works and time is of the essence so I'm satisfied with that.
