Other answers already were given, this is an alternative that *might* 
help if it is startup environment variables you are interested in. If 
you add a file to TOMCAT_HOME/bin/ and call that file "" it 
will run this file and set environment variables in it. I had to do this 
on fedora core 2, I found adding to individual files plus other ones 
already mentioned always left something broken. Add file 
TOMCAT_HOME/bin/ with these contents fixed everything for me:


export JAVA_HOME="/opt/jdk1.5.0"
export CATALINA_HOME="/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30"

You can use an editor to create this file, then "chmod u+x" to 
make sure it is executable (linux can use filenames as hints but really 
has no defined name for type of file, chmod makes it executable).
