As a side note: general support for SLES10 ends with july 2013. If you 
don't want to buy extended support you should switch to SLES11 as soon 
as possible. This includes tomcat6 instead of tomcat5. SUSE uses version 
6.0.18 but backports security patches.

Though I would still recommend the official tomcat binaries from the 
apache website. It's much easier to support a well known state that your 
developers can also install on their workstation.
