Josh,
I am not sure if i understand your problem completely , but you DONOT necessarily have to follow the webapp dir structure.

This is what i do to make the /servlet work(porting from jrun to tomcat with minimum effort :)):
1. create a WEB-INF directory under your app directory and add the web.xml file to it.
2. add a context "" in the server.xml file with the docBase as your apps' root dir.
3. Add all the jars/classes explicitly to the CLASSPATH variable before running tomcat.sh to start tomcat.

This shd work.

        Yes.  Read the manual and it will explain how the direcotry
structure has to work.  Read the Servlet and/or JSP specification (which
Tomcat is the reference implementation of) and you will find out how the
directory structure is supposed to work.  Look at the sample WEBAPPs that
come with Tomcat and you will find out how the directory structure is
supposed to work.

I'm beginning to thing no one knows the answer to this question.  Can
anyone help me?  Does anyone currently have their setup as follows?

As far as I can tell, tomcat doesn't have a way to just allow a /servlet
directory so I can put all my .java, .class, and .jar files in like most
servlet install files ask, am I missing something? It appears that I have
to use the webapps directory, then have the WEB-INF directory structure
below it. Is that right?
