I don't know of any specific online documentation to point you to, but
you basically set CATALINA_HOME to a directory that contains a
"conf/web.xml", "conf/server.xml" and a "webapps" directory (usually
containing your webapp WAR files or just the whole, expanded webapp) and
run (or tomcat.bat) from the real installation.

Tomcat uses the installation directory for all the normal stuff like
libraries and all that, and it uses the configuration in the directory
specified as CATALINA_HOME for everything else. So, you can have one
binary installation and several instances running off of it, all with
differing configurations.

I'm sure there /is/ documentation out there for this, I just don't
remember reading it ;)

I dunno. A buddy of mine uses 2.2.0 with no problem. Perhaps search the
list for recent similar problems, and start a new thread if you can't
find the solution?
