If on redhat/fedora core,
         rpm -qa|grep tomcat
will tell you if there's anything that has tomcat in the name. (Since
there are many names to tomcat packages)
         yum search tomcat
will also tell you something.

If it gets something for you, you can do
         rpm -ql "the package name you got from rpm -qa..."
will give you the installed location.

If you suspect it might be already running, you can also do
 	lsof -i:8080 (you should be root.)
 	links localhost:8080 or just open a browser to 
 	grep tomcat /etc/passwd
or do
 	lsof -i | less
 	netstat -an | less
and see if there are something that looks like tomcat and ask the list 
again with that.

On other distros it can be different so if you tell us what
         uname -a
gives, it will help.

My 2 cents.
