Tomcat 4.0 & 3.2

I want to install Tomcat 4.0. Do you need to download both "jakarta-tomcat-4.0.zip" and "jakarta-servletapi-4.zip" on my Windows ME ? I found that if I only download "jakarta-tomcat-4.0.zip" , in the /lib/ it doesn't have "servlet.jar" file so the javax.servlet package can't be recognized. But, when I download the "jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3.zip" and unzip it, its "lib" has the "servlet.jar" file with it. Why is Tomcat 4.0 like that ?
Plus, for Tomcat 3.2 , after I unziped it. I found the "webapps" directory but there is no "ROOT" directory under it and thus no subdirectory like WEB-INF/classes under them. Can I just create them by myself. I tried and it seems works.
Please help me clarify this also.
Thanks !!

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
