Hi all, 

Just to finish this thread which is more REDHAT/RPM related than
strictly TC. 

* For now TC 3.2 RPM install all tomcat stuff in /home/tomcat
* TC 4.0 will live in /home/tomcat4/ (I'm rebuilding it rigth now)

I'm worried about the fact that some 3.2 users could do an 
UPDATE (rpm -Uvh) instead of an INSTALL (rpm -Ivh) and 
so the will destroy their installed TC 3.2. 

BTW, I'll package a TOMCAT RPM (VERSION 4.0m2).
It will live with the package TOMCAT (VERSION 3.2beta6.1), since
no collision between data dirs

I could allways fixe the RPM naming after ;-)

PS: Seems we need a ant version > 1.1 to build TC 4.0 ?
