You may hear some grumbling on the list about package-managed versions
of Tomcat. You will certainly get a lot of questions that you might
not know the answers to, so you'll have to do some digging.

Presumably, that message comes from Tomcat itself. Can you confirm that?

That's where the stuff lives, but it still needs to be deployed.

Where did you install the "sample app"? Did you just drop it into
/usr/share/tomcat6/webapps and it auto-deployed?

Do you know what your CATALINA_BASE is? If not, try running "jinfo
[pid]" where "[pid]" is the process-id of the JVM running Tomcat: it
will dump-out all the system properties. You're looking for
"catalina.base". (It wouldn't hurt to know what catalina.home is, too).
