Subject More (Unending) "Resource Not Found"/ Directory Problems

To the list (my new best friends;-):

I finally got my (very simple) app up and working under the Debian package
but was having problems with the ajp13 connector.  On someone's advice, I
using a manual installation (i. e., I used the Linux binary, but unpacked
and installed by
hand as opposed to using Debian's apt-get mechanism).  Now, nothing works
I'm using the same paths and descriptors as in the Debian installation,
adjusted for having
installed tomcat in /usr/local instead of /usr/share.

I added this to the server.xml file:

      <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps"
       unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"
       xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">

<!-- This is what I added; note above, it is contained withing the localhost
elements -->
        <Context path="/smsinfo" docbase="smsinfo"
                 debug="5" reloadable="true" />

Here is the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps directory structure:

drwxr-xr-x   9 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:05 ./
drwxr-sr-x  11 root staff 4096 2006-05-24 20:16 ../
drwxr-xr-x   5 root root  4096 2006-04-14 14:09 balancer/
drwxr-xr-x  21 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:04 jsp-examples/
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:04 ROOT/
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:04 servlets-examples/
drwxr-xr-x   3 anw  anw   4096 2006-05-24 20:50 smsinfo/
drwxr-xr-x  12 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:04 tomcat-docs/
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root  4096 2006-05-24 20:04 webdav/

(The smsinfo is the app of interest)


When I go to http://localhost:8080, I get the tomcat default page, with all
the examples, just fine.
When I go to http://localhost:8080/smsinfo, I get, from tomcat:

HTTP Status 404 - /smsinfo/

Type: Status report

Message: /smsinfo/

Description: The requested resource (/smsinfo/) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.17

All the permissions are the same.  The only difference I can see is the old
installation (I think)
had the ROOT subdirectory in a different place.

Two questions:
What's wrong here, and can someone help me with this immediate problem?
Is there some definitive guide to how the hell you're supposed to organize a
directory structure with multiple applications?

Thanks to all for the help-
