Apache w/ Tomcat Servlet Container

Hi All,
Well, after numerous attempts to get support from my web hosting service, Oxxus.net, I'm thoroughly convinced that they have some automated support engine that parses your email, and generates a response based on the keywords it found -- what garbage!

My last email included a request for detailed information, or at least some direction as to finding a source of more information.

The response:
Normally, all you have to do is place the JAR file in your /lib directory.

What da @#$@^!

Anyhow, my question is this (thanks for putting up with my rant):

Oxxus.net is running Apache and Tomcat together. Now, normally, in my stand-alone Tomcat, I simply put my web apps in the webapps/ directory. I've done the same with the Apache/Tomcat server, but this does not work. I have the following directories:

var/www/html/ - basic html here
home/myHome/tomcat4/webapps - JSP/Servlet apps here?

This is the directory structure Oxxus.net has set up. I realize yours may be different, but can you offer any advice as to how and where I should deploy my JSP/Servlet apps on such a configuration?

Thanks again!
