Just to reassure you : I have a series of Linux Debian systems with 
Tomcat 4.1, 5.0 and 5.5, all installed via apt-get, and I don't think 
the installation is broken per se. They all work fine.
Just make sure the JVM is a Sun one, not the gcj, and that it is 
installed and made the default "alternative" *before* you install the 
Tomcat packages.

At another level however Chuck is right, in that it is very difficult 
for Tomcat experts to help when there is a problem with the packages 
distributed with the various Linux distributions, because each one has 
it's own file layout, with links all over the place to all over the 
place, so compared to a standard Tomcat from it is 
difficult to figure out where the files should be.
