Why did you get the source? If all you need is just to run Tomcat (and build 
some webapps), I believe getting the binary would be much easier; untar it, 
and have a "/usr/local/tomcat/bin/ start".

With "administrator", you meant "root", right? Well, maybe there were some 
files that had the "r" flag removed. To remove the directory, just login to 
root and cd to where the jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src directory resides and "rm 
-rf jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3-src".

BTW, isn't Tomcat package available for OS X?
