This seems a bit awkward.  I've decided to just go with your later 
discussion and install Apache.

I've got the apache part setup and working.  Now I'm going to move onto 
getting Geronimo to handle the dynamic content.

This is really what I would have preferred.  I really feel like I'm 
running two daemons to do the same thing now.  I'm not sure why Apache is 
necessary for what I'm trying to do.  Oh well, if that's the way to 
handle things.  

I think I've got this worked out now.  I do appreciate your help.  Thank 
you.  I may still have more to ask you if I have problems deploying a war 
file, but I think I can work that out.  Thank you.
