Robin,
I don't think you really need to have tomcat installed by rpm just to 
get the daemon working. From what I have managed to work out by a quick 
look today, if you want to run tomcat as a non-root user, and you want 
tomcat 4, you have to do some extra steps because it won't bind to port 
80 unless it's running as root.

Check out the thread mentioned in the tomcat website:
