It's nice that you solved your main problem, but what you write above does not make much 
technical sense.
A "default web page" does not "camp on" any particular port.
And deleting a web page does not stop a webserver from running.
Maybe it is MS's brain-dead way of presenting things that gets you confused.

The underlying fact is : two separate processes cannot open the same listening port on the

same host.  When one process opens that listening port (80 in this case), any other 
process that tries to open the same one will fail.
If Tomcat is now running fine and listening on port 80, it means that whatever you did 
above, was really stop IIS from running and opening port 80 first.
