Smile Tomcat5 displaying blank page when deployed

I installed tomcat5 in Fedora 8 using "yum install tomcat5"
It installed fine and this is my directory structure

[root@localhost /]# cd etc
[root@localhost etc]# cd tomcat5
[root@localhost tomcat5]# ls
Catalina server-minimal.xml webapps
catalina.policy server.xml web.xml tomcat5.conf
context.xml tomcat-users.xml
[root@localhost tomcat5]# cd Catalina
[root@localhost Catalina]# cd localhost
[root@localhost localhost]#

I've set the CATALINA_HOME environment variable as the following:

[root@localhost localhost]# CATALINA_HOME=/etc/tomcat5
[root@localhost localhost]# export CATALINA_HOME

inside localhost I tried service tomcat5 start and it started fine:

[root@localhost localhost]# service tomcat5 start
Starting tomcat5: [ OK ]

I tried localhost:8080 in browser and it displays a blank page..Browsing through some of the forums I tried

[root@localhost localhost]# telnet localhost 8080
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

I tried opening a .html page placed in a directory thats under tomcat5 and still it displays a blank page

Please tell me what I m doing wrong here...Any help will be much appreciated...Thanks in advance.
