Unzip it to a directory?

What specifically do you need to know?

Hi David, I unzip the apache-tomcat-6.0.29.tar.gz on my applications folder but when I try to open this folder from a terminal windows I got this messages:

cd applications ----- OK!!!

cd apache-tomcat-6.0.29
-bash: cd: apache-tomcat-6.0.29: No such file or directory

If I unzip the apache-tomcat-6.0.29.tar.gz on my user folder and open a terminal window, go to the /apache-tomcat-6.0.29/bin folder and execute this command:

sudo ./startup.sh

It's work, why???

How can I automate this startup command???

When I go to localhost:8080 and try to open any option, tomcat always ask me for a user and password, but I don't have it, where is this user and password???

I thinks this are all my question, for now :D

Buy "Tomcat the definitive guide". It will tell you exactly step by step how to do it. It also has other useful information.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
