How to install Alfresco on Apache+Tomcat?

Hi guys,

I have developed and deployed a few web applications successfully using Apache 2 + modjk + Tomcat 5.5.9 on a Windows XP box. The Tomcat root directory is c:\Tomcat.

I decided to give Alfresco a try and hence I downloaded Alfresco Community Tomcat 2.9.0B zip file and unzipped it. Found the alfresco.war and deployed it in c:\Tomcat\webapps directory. When I restarted Tomcat, the WAR file (alfresco.war) got extracted into a folder named alfresco (c:\Tomcat\webapps\alfresco) as expected.  However, it also simultaneously crashes Tomcat! I get a bunch of errors in the log files…

I probably need to tweak some of the .properties or .xml files in c:\Tomcat\webapps\alfresco directory. I would like to try it out with HSQLDB that I presume Alfresco comes with. So I haven't installed MySQL on my Windows XP box. Can anyone please guide me in this pursuit?
