running tomcat with eclipse as non-root user

Hello all,

Having recently switched to Linux OS (Red Hat Linux ws 4), I am finding it extremely confusing to understand how to install and configure stuff as non-root.

I have installed tomcat and eclipse with its tomcat sysdeo plugin as root.
As a non-root user, when I try to start tomcat from within eclipse (i.e usiing the sysdeo plugin) I cannot and its says I do not have permission.

My understanding is that I should not be going around tomcat installation and changing the permissions and giving execute permissions to others and stuff. That will not be the correct way of doing things - right?

Even if I create a "tomcat" user to start tomcat, I will still not be able to start tomcat from eclipse when I am logged on as "myself".

Can anyone give me insight on how do ppl install and configure these applications without runnung into premission problems?
I never thought about these accesibilty/permission issues while working on Windows.


Thanks much in advance !
