I believe that ports below 1000 is reserved on *nix systems, therefore 
you may not run Tomcat on
port 80, except as root. Maybe you could chmod tomcat to to run as root 
so you are able to start Tomcat
without su'ing, but I don't think you'll be able to make it run on port 
80 running it as a regular user.
