I installed tomcat 5.23 from the yum install of centos5.3 and have started
tomcat on port 8080 . The http://hostname:8080 shows a blank page. In a
standard Tomcat distribution, the default application is located in the ROOT
directory /var/lib/tomcat5/webapps: From centos installation, this directory
is empty. Please help us to bring up the apache-tomcat installation page.

tomcat5.conf has the following settings
CATALINA_HOME="/usr/share/tomcat5"
JASPER_HOME="/usr/share/tomcat5"
CATALINA_TMPDIR="/usr/share/tomcat5/temp"
JAVA_ENDORSED_DIRS="/usr/share/tomcat5/common/endorsed"

I see the following in /usr/share/tomcat5 after installtion. Why is webapps
folder empty?
drwxr-xr-x 2 tomcat root 4096 Mar 10 09:27 bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 tomcat root   23 Mar 10 09:27 common -> /var/lib/tomcat5/common
