Ria,
If you want your separate directory ,you are to set context path in server.xml.
so check out server.xml .

I always encounter errors when using Tomcat.
Some error seems funny and incredible.
So I am using Resin now and feel better.
I think you should set your context path in server.xml as Ashish Kothari has answered.

Tomcat is ok,initally you might face some problems,but later on once you get used to of it.
It is quite easy.
I would suggest go for tomcat.
