tomcat manager login error

Hi is there any one to help me!
I am quite new in Linux as well as in tomcat sever. I have installed apache and php in my CentOS 5 server. Also I have successfully installed the tomcat sever during the installation of CentOS 5.
Now my apache sever is running and also tomcat server is running
When I do" I can see "If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations!"
But when I try to login through the tomcat manager or tomcat web administrator tool I can not login from my root user and password.
Also I found "tomcat-users.xml" file and try to use the existing users in the file but still I could not login.
So how I can login via Tomcat manger or Tomcat web administrator tool?

My second question is "in which location I need to placed my index.jsp file.?"
Hopping to get your help!!!!!

By default, access to the manager application is disabled in Tomcat, by

virtue of omitting any valid users or roles from tomcat-users.xml.

To set up the manager application, add a user with the manager role to

alter an existing user, such as tomcat, as follows:

<role rolename="manager"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat, manager"/>

If Tomcat is running, restart it to read the updated tomcat-users.xml.

Next, check the URL http://localhost:8080/manager/html.

You’ll be asked for a username and password, so enter the details of

the user that you configured.


you can save this example as a file named index.jsp and place it in

the webapps/ROOT folder located in your Tomcat installation directory.

Then enter http://localhost:8080/index.jsp into your browser as the
