Two suggestions to the original poster:

* Use a current version of Tomcat, with the associated documentation.
  Tomcat 3.2.4 was released over two years ago, and has been superceded
  by two major versions since then -- and the docs have improved also.

* When you are first learning Tomcat, install it stand-alone, instead
  of behind a web server (Apache or IIS).  Once you understand the basic
  concepts it is much easier to go on to the web server configuration

In fact, anyone who *ever* installs Tomcat behind a web server is
subjecting themselves to needless configuration effort unless they
*really* need it.
