Which version of Tomcat is it?
If it is 3.2.3 (i.e. 3.x.x) then you can use mod_jk (see the Jakarta site
If it 4.0 then you might have difficulty, or I did at any rate. I'm not sure
if there is a suitable adapter for Apache available at the moment... of
course I might have been half asleep when I was trying to get it working
(what ever IT was?).
An alternative is to disable Apache (or other web server) and modify Tomcat
to use port 80. I'm sure it is easy to do. One of the xml file in the conf
directory should have the setting.
PS... and remember to run a servlet directly, you need to add the
appropriate entry to the web.xml file in your context folder.
