I reckon there's vital logs full of informative error messages
*somewhere* :P If you installed Tomcat from an RPM then check the
/etc/init.d/tomcat script, and see where it redirects logs to. Possibly
/var/log/tomcat.log. Only once you can run a little JSP like <%
System.out.println("logs"); %> and see the output, can you claim you've
got all the logs, and without that you're just guessing.

Running 'ps axw | grep java' should show lots of lines mentioning Tomcat.
That's usual. Each Tomcat thread is mapped to a process.

Nothing wrong with 3.2.3, I've hosted lots of production sites on it.
FYI they'll probably be releasing 4.1 soon.

RTFM :) Basically you put a <Host> tag in server.xml and edit httpd.conf
to include the auto-generated mod_jk-auto.conf file.

I see that in 4.0.4 they removed the example of how to use AJP1.3 :( I've
never gotten the newer Warp connector to work, but maybe you'll have
better luck.

Either that or mod_warp.

Have fun, tackle one problem at a time, and read the docs :)
