the easiest thing for you to do is to

1. download
2. Make sure you have JDK installed and that JAVA_HOME is set and your PATH is set
"export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.4.1" "export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH"

3. Unzip the zip :) "jar xvf"
4. "cd jakarta-tomcat-4.1.18-blablabla/bin"
5. "./"

badabim badabom, you should be good to go

Subject: Installing tomcat on RH8.0

I already have SDK1.4 installed and setup so I downloaded the binary 
tomcat4-4.1.18-full.1jpp.noarch.rpm from the tomcat website and 
installed it as root (on RedHat 8.0) using,
rpm -ivh tomcat4-4.1.18-full.1jpp.noarch.rpm

Appears to install fine into /var/tomcat4 giving warnings about I need 
to alter my config files now.  I am new to tomcat so I checked the 
RUNNING.TXT file and after reading it I am none the wiser!  I have no 
/var/tomcat4/bin/ or /var/tomcat4/bin/ like it 
says, althought I can start and stop the server using the scripts in 
/etc/rc.d/init.d  I managed to fiddle about (after reading the logs) and 
got something running, but when I connect to http://localhost:8080 I get 
an error about no context manager.

Are there any comprehensive docs on how to setup tomcat under linux, or 
can someone provide with a step by step idiot guide?
