Installing Alfresco on RHEL5 with existing Tomcat and JDK

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to install Alfresco on our RHEL5/Fedora box with an existing Tomcat binary 6.0.29, Sun JDK 1.6.0_21, and Ingres 9.3 using the WAR method, followed the instructions in the manual but I got confused/lost as I went along. I copied the alfresco.war and share.war file to my Tomcat directory i.e. /usr/src/tomcat/webapps and was able to see the share login page http://localhost:8080/share however http://localhost:8080/alfresco does not load i.e. "resource not available".

I've also installed or copied so to speak the alfresco-community-sample-extensions-3.3.tar.gz and alfresco-community-wcm-3.3.tar.gz respectively to /usr/src/tomcat/webapps/alfresco, and I've noticed that there's a virtual-tomcat directory, what does virtual-tomcat do? Does that mean there are going to be two instance of tomcat running?

Would someone care to enlighten me?
