No, you did not.
There are many versions of Tomcat 5.5.  The precise version is important.
There are many versions of RedHat Linux. The precise version is important.
And the log message which you mentioned is a not a Tomcat log message.
Errors specific to Tomcat are (under Linux, usually) in /var/log/* or /var/log/tomcat55/*.

The more /precise/ information you supply, the better/quicker you will get help.
It also saves a lot of time to the people trying to help, and that is important, as they 
are all busy people, who do this on their own time.
