For Tomcat 4's "server.xml", all you have to do is point your browser at
the docs included with Tomcat, and then go to "Server Configuration".
They are also available online at:

For the particular case of turning off directory listings (not yet
included in the online docs), you need to edit the file "conf/web.xml" --
it has comments for what all the settings are.  The option you want is on
the "default" file-serving servlet.
