Clearly you need to use ApJServMount otherwise JServ doesn't know which
URLs it should be responsible for. Personally I've always found the
documentation in the config file itself (in the comments) to be good enough
- although I found recently that I don't believe it matters *what* zone
you tell JServ to go to (in tomcat), it will pass the normal URL through
and Tomcat will treat that as the context path - ie

ApJServMount /fred /bob

will *actually* go to the fred context, not the bob one. IME, of course,
and with Tomcat 3.1 :)

As for the /ROOT business - looking at the source very briefly yesterday,
I believe it's case *in*sensitive in 3.1.
