Ok... I'm confused.  If it's not running yet, why should anything but a
404 show up?

In any problem, the first place to look is the logs.  Second is the
tomcat docs to verify things are setup correctly.  Actually in your
case, if this tomcat came with Ubuntu, maybe the second place to look is
the Ubuntu docs for this package.

After that, we need more information like where things were installed
and what was attempted in what order, ...etc., ...  We can't see over
your shoulder. :-)
