You're correct. If you're running tomcat directly on port 80,
you add a virtual host in tomcat's server.xml file. Just search
the net for instructions on that. If you're using apache httpd
as a frontend it's a matter of configuring a redirectmatch
in your virtual host configuration. 

You don't need to change the name of the folder where the roller
webapp is, in either of the above cases. Tomcat or apache httpd
will fix that for you.
