I'm running it on OpenSuSE and have previously run it on Debian and Fedora Core 4.  None of
these distributions offer jsvc as a package either.  The source code for jsvc is included
with the tomcat binaries in the bin directory.  You have to gunzip the file jsvc.tar.gz which
will create the subdirectries containing the source you'll need to compile.  You'll then need
to compile jsvc and write your own init.d script.  You'll also need to edit server.xml and
change the connector port from 8080 to 80.  I'll send you a copy of my init script you can
used as a template if you'd like but basically it's just /etc/skeleton altered to launc jsvc.
