FronZtoA, if I am not wrong here, you know everything from Z to A. :-) : -)
I understand your interest in architecture.
The best way to learn it is to discuss with people. Hope you can contribute more to our discussions.
As for your questions, I asnwer them as follows: First make Tomcat and Apache
work independently. They use port numbers 80 and 8080,respectively. After this, try to configure them to work together. You had better have a NT box though Tomcat can
work on 95/98.
There is a folder called "uguide" under tomcat, you need to read it carefully.
