MessageAh, I think I might not have explained correctly:

I have History Education CD, which installs a Tomcat and a MySQL server on Windows. It then copies a load of videos and clips and text onto this server.

However we dont have a (permanent) windows server. So i want to create do the installation on a temporary Windows server and then copy the data, from server to server. i.e. like if it was apache i would copy c:\httpd\htdocs directory to the /var/www/html directory.

Whilst I'm ok moveing the MySQL data from server to server, i'm not so sure about the Tomcat...

However as i don't have experience of setting up Tomcat on Linux, I'm looking for help setting it up the Tomcat on Linux. As i cant even see where $catalina_home is, or where it is even meant to be!

   I did setup a Tomcat server about 2 years ago.  I don't remember most of the details but I can confirm that it does run with Apache on Windows.  I think there were some prerequisites to download j2ree and the sdk and make some manual path adjustments for the windows environment.  Also there was about a 10 line addition or so that had to be appended to my Apache config to call on Tomcat.  It didn't support Java Bean technology so I ended up switching to Resin 2.0 for Java support.  But for the short time it was running it seemed to work fine.  Good luck, it wasn't a fun process, but it is at least possible.
