The "root" directory would be webapps/ROOT.  Other webapps are located
in the webapps directory with ROOT, each running independently(ish --
same JVM).  ROOT accepts the URLs that don't match any other webapp.  As
far as checking to see if it works, just hit a URL known to work --
maybe the default success page distributed w/ tomcat if you still have
that in there. (http://localhost:8080/)
