I want to setup apache tomcat on my linux distribution .

I Have downloaded apache tomcat from below mentioned link.

Administration Web Application:
[URL="http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi"]http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi[/URL]

The setup was in following format.
apache-tomcat-5.5.29-admin.tar.gz

Below are the command i have used to install the software.
I have copied the file to / directory

Quote:
gunzip apache-tomcat-5.5.29-admin.tar.gz
tar -xvf apache-tomcat-5.5.29-admin.tar

Now there is a folder called apache-tomcat-5.5.29 in my root directory.

I m currently stuck at this step .What should be my next step. i had no trouble installing it on my windows box but since i m new to linux request you to help me install it.
