I am in a confusion.I have no idea about which version of servlets should be used while developing my JSF applications.
For ex for JSF 1.0 which version of J2EE should be used,for JSF 1.1 which version should be used etc,etc.can you please clarify?

I think you're using the term "J2EE" to refer to a J2EE application container/server. The question sounds more like what version of the J2EE spec to use. The difference is that Tomcat wouldn't qualify as "J2EE" under the first meaning, but it very definitely implements parts of the J2EE spec - just not the full stack.
Speaking of Tomcat, I recommend Tomcat6 for JSF, since it includes EL support at the container level, which Tomcat5 did not. One less jar to worry about. Tomcat6 implements JSP 2.1 and Servlet 2.5, which is sufficient to run JSF 1.2.
