Just for info, Tomcat isn't Apache. Apache's a stand-alone webserver, and so is Tomcat - they just have different specialties, so are often used together.
As for your REAL question - someday I hope someone will come up with a less confusing scheme for making software available. If you want to get started quick, download http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat/release/v3.2.3/bin/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3.zip . The other files in this directory are the same package in TAR form, some security verification files and some support files. The subdirectories contain additional components that as OS-specific. You may need those files as well, but read the docs.
Hope that makes things a little clearer!
