+Choice of Web container
+Geronimo M5 ships with both jetty and tomcat web containers running.
+Most likely you want only one of these. We have provided configuration files
+for jetty-only and tomcat-only configurations.  To change to one of these configurations,
+go to the var/config directory and copy the appropriate files to config.list and config.xml,
+cp config.jetty.list config.list
+cp config.jetty.xml config.xml
+Most gbean attributes can be configured using the config.xml file.  The attributes most likely
+to be changed are already included in the supplied config.xml file.
