MB,

You can follow the instructions given for Tomcat 6 on this wiki page:

http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/TomcatDevelopmentVirtualHosts

The only difference is that the Manager application for Tomcat 5.5.29 is contained in the
ROOT application. This means that you will skip the following step.

3. Copy the manager application from $CATALINA_HOME/webapps to each of the 
   virtual host webapp directories
   1. For virtual host foo, this means copying manager to
      hosts/foo-host/webapps (full path depends on actual location to
      match the server.xml entry)
   2. For virtual host bar, this means copying manager to
      hosts/bar-host/webapps (full path depends on actual location
      to match the server.xml entry)

I just tested this on my 5.5.29 installation on Fedora 13 (Java 6.0.20). Works as advertised.

just my two cents . . .
