I have updated the directions to correspond to the released Geronimo 2.1

after creating the transaction manager jar.

For your convenience, here is a link to the jar that I built:

I think that after the tutorial has been re-tested for the released 
Geronimo 2.1 version - that tutorial should be all you need to set up
