Starting Tomcat from Eclipse - Permission denied

Hi, this is on Ubuntu Dapper. Tomcat 5 has been installed through the default repositories, and I've registered the Sysdeo Tomcat plugin with Eclipse 3.1.

Now when I click the menu "Start Tomcat", there's the error message:
Code: /usr/share/tomcat5/work/Catalina/localhost/balancer/tldCache.ser (Permission denied)
	at Method)
I've made sure there are read, write, and even execute permissions for everyone on the complete contents of /usr/share/tomcat5 (which I should revert once I got Tomcat starting).

I believe the error cause is, the folder work is a link to another folder (which??).

Could someone please aid me? Thanks

Edit: I'm using another installation of Tomcat now, which works... So it was those "folder links", indeed.

- BTW, I didn't find a way to create or edit those links. Is that possible?
