Installation of both packages is done in the standard way.

Assuming that you want to use a single, standard TCP/IP port for both
websites, then your best bet is to run Apache httpd on port 80 and have
it forward requests to Tomcat for one of the web sites. That can be
achieved using mod_proxy_ajp, which is included in Apache httpd 2.2.x.

Steps to set up:
1. Set up Apache httpd normally and get it working with your
  "other" website as a <VirtualHost>.

2. Create a second <VirtualHost> for your GeonetWork and make sure it
   can serve a simple "test" page for requests using that host name.

3. Install Tomcat and configure a <Connector> in conf/server.xml for
   the "AJP" protocol (If using Tomcat 6.0.x, one is already configured
   by default to run on port 8009). You can disable all other
   <Connectors> by commenting them out using standard XML comments.
   Deploy your webapp in the standard way.

4. In your Apache httpd <VirtualHost>, add this configuration:

   ProxyPass / ajp://localhost:8009/
   ProxyPassReverse / ajp://localhost:8009/

   (You will have to change "localhost" to the hostname of the server
    running Tomcat if they are on separate servers)

5. Re-start Apache httpd and now all requests to http://GeonetWorkHost/
   should be sent to Tomcat.

That should be enough to get you started. There are a number of other
options, but I believe this is the easiest to get going.

Good luck,
