Okay - I have realised that know NOTHING about Tomcat.. I though you could 
just go to /manager/html and deply the .war file.. But apparently you cant do 
that at all..
So I have cleaned the tomcat dir so a "find ." (well, its split up via 
symlinks, so I appended "find ." for /var/share/tomcat5 and /var/lib/tomcat5 
and /var/log/tomcat5 - stupid debian install script) results in the attached 

Could someone just guide me with a step by step install of the example from 
solr-nightly/example into Tomcat. Should I copy the entire content of the 
example-dir into $CATALINA_HOME (/var/share/tomcat5) or into 
$CATALINA_HOME/server (/var/share/tomcat5/server) or what?

Remember - I have no clue.. so _any_ help would be greatly appreciated.. ;)

(sorry for being a nag and asking stupid questions)
