Tomcat installation questions

I have read the installation documentation on jakarta-tomcat regarding the running of Tomcat as a daemon using jsvc. My questions are:

1) Is there not a simpler way to install tomcat on red hat 9 than to start by compiling source tarballs for jsvc?

2) Where should the tomcat folders be placed relative to the jdk? if my jdk is at /usr/local/java/j2sdk1.4.2, should tomcat go down at /usr/local/java/tomcat5.0.16?

for 2nd question,
it can go anywhere

for 1
see if they have binary file if you don't want to compile

if you want to use tomcat with apache later on,
find a doc that describes to install both and use the exact same version
otherwise it may take you ## much time to make them work together
