custom 404 error page

Our system uses apache and tomcat on linux boxes. Does anyone know how to configure tomcat to use a custom 404 error page? I can get a custom page (via apache) when someone enters a bad .html URL, but would like to have a custom page for when someone enters a bad .jsp URL.
THanks

fingered it out. In the WEB-INF/web.xml file for each context, add the following
<error-page>
<error-code>
404
</error-code>
<location>
/jsp/errorPage404.jsp
</location>
</error-page>

the file entry (/jsp/errorPage404.jsp) must start with a / and is relative to the context home directory.
