Well now I am indeed thoroughly confused.  Here is the website in
I have been looking at the various pages and links on this site and so
far I believe that they all are linking to the
/usr/local/src/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/webapps directory.

I do believe the "real" tomcat resides in the
/usr/local/src/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9 directory and the /usr/local/tomcat
is a link to that directory.  FYI, there also is a link in /usr/local/
titled "java" that redirects to the /usr/java/jdk-1.5.0 directory.
