I just installed Tomcat on a FreeBSD 4.1 system and it's working fine,
though I don't yet know how to use it 8^(

Two solutions,

1) Use the ports collection which works very well and will install a running
Tomcat-Apache solution. Requires FreeBSD 4.2+. This in the method I used
though I did install a new Apache using a FreeBSD layout (not included with
Apache src).

2) Follow the instructions from the Tomcat web site. Requires you have
already setup the JDK and JavaVMWrapper. I used JDK 1.1.8 and Javavmwrapper
1.1. I've done this as well and it worked also.

I would be happy to send more detail if needed.
