There is a link in /usr/local for "tomcat" that directs to
/usr/local/src/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9.  Is it important to have the
"tomcat" link set up this same way on the new server?  Is there a
specific reason why it would have been set up this way?

It is not a policy issue.  I believe it is something no one setup.
Since I am the local tomcat "novice" I have not done anything about it
either.  I just have to remember to manually start tomcat when I reboot
the server (which I have had occasion to forget to do before).

Ok, well that resides in /usr/java/jdk-1.5.0.  Where can I download a
new version?  Is the download straightforward for a novice like me?  Or
do I need to read up on a thing or two before downloading?  The machine
I am attempting to move this to is running CentOS 4.0.
