Question fresh tomcat 5.5 install not showing tomcat homepage

I am running RHEL4 and installed tomcat 5.5 through up2date. The app appears to start just fine, I get no errors that I can see in the catalina.out log file, and I can deploy their sample.war file just fine and see hello, world and such.

The problem is that when I just go to http://hostname:8080 I see a blank page, no errors or anything (through firefox, at least). Glancing through the docs it says that the manager has to be enabled, but even if I haven't done that yet, should I be able to see the tomcat homepage?

I have a feeling that the previous admin messed with some permissions around this dev system that might be interfering with tomcat, but I don't see any errors in the catalina.out file to indicate that. So, is this expected behavior and I need to install something else? Here is the log file as I see it:

through IE I get a "page cannot be found" error.
