Install Tomcat 6 via command line


I'm trying to install Redhat 6 on a fairly clean version of RHEL 5.3. I only have command line access to the client machine and was hoping that
yum install tomcat
would work but it appears whatever repo the client machine is pointing to doesn't have it as it returns "No package available"

I've updated java and jre via yum and also downloaded the tar file from the sun website. I'm just not sure what to do next!

Can anyone either tell me how to get the yum command to work or how to manually install it
