I installed it from ubuntu apt-get.

Yeah, I was thinking it was some sort of permissions thing, but my webapp
has the same permissions as the example webapps, which is root.  I will have
to look at all the permissions again to make sure.  tomcat will server other
pages though so it seems to have permissions to the directory.  For
instance, html pages.

Yes, the examples that come with it work.  Also, if I copy my jsp file to
one of these directories it runs fine.
