What version of tomcat are you running? What version of Cocoon do you want to install? Different combinations of Tomcat and Cocoon will have different installation instructions.

For cocoon 2, go to http://xml.apache.org/cocoon2/install.html

For Cocoon 1, go to http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/install.html
