I just downloaded Apache Axis 1.4 and would like to know where I put it?

I currenlty have Tomcat 5.5 loaded and working. Do I put the Apache Axis folder in the Tomcat 5.5 home?

I wouldn't put the Axis directory into the Tomcat directory; you can keep it wherever you like. Just put the Axis war file into Tomcat's webapps directory. In most cases Tomcat will recognize it, unpack it, and start Axis without any further manual intervention.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
