Tomcat 6.0.16 on Linux installation and setup

My Linux version is:(gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-3)) #1 Fri
Apr 20 16:25:34 EDT 2007
The tomcat that I downloaded is 6.0.16

I've installed Tomcat6 on a Linux system per the Tomcat6 documentation, as
    cd $CATALINA_HOME/bin
    tar xvfz jsvc.tar.gz
    cd jsvc-src
    cp jsvc ..
    cd ..

I then started Tomcat, per the documentation, as follows:
    ./bin/jsvc -cp ./bin/bootstrap.jar \
        -outfile ./logs/catalina.out -errfile ./logs/catalina.err \

The startup fails with the following errors in  the catalina.err 

30/06/2008 15:19:09 21791 jsvc.exec error: Cannot open PID file
/var/run/, PID is 21791
30/06/2008 15:19:09 21790 jsvc.exec error: Service exit with a return value
of 255

Can anyone tell me how to work around these errors? Thanks for any thoughts.
