	I don't run the script.  I get the war distribution called
'alfresco-community-war-2.1.0.tar.gz'.  It's located at:

	I untar'd it... and the rest is described in my message.
	I hate that so many java applications out there have to install their
own jdk.  Thankfully Alfresco comes with a raw .war version that can be
installed into an existing tomcat/jdk environment.  
	The only thing my description does not do is start OpenOffice on
bootup.  I figure a simple startup script should fix that.  I have run
the headless mode manually in a separate login session and it works fine
communicating to it.
	So, Alfresco does run on F8's (and F7) Tomcat as long as you get Sun's
1.6 jdk/jre.
