For example, the "Problem Tracking Database" link in the welcome portlet
currently points at :
But it's likely that URL could become stale within the lifespan of the
Geronimo 1.0 console.

So instead the welcome portlet could point at:

Can someone familiar with how the HTTP server is
administered please advise whether or not this sounds like a reasonable
