You must install the module in the Apache web server if you
use tomcat and apache.

Tomcat is much slower than Apache at delivering static content.  If your 
has a lot of that, for example if you are developing a real estate web site
with lots of pictures, then you should use Apache to deliver the images.

Tomcat 4.01 can be used as a standalone web server, and in many cases
it is faster than an apache-tomcat configuration.  The only way of knowing
for sure is to try both configurations and to see which one is faster.
