If you just want to practice struts/jsp just download the Binary distrubution in the zip format.

You have to set the following environment variables appropriately

(i) CATALINA_HOME or TOMCAT_HOME to the main/root directory where you have either installed or extracted the Tomcat

(ii) JAVA_HOME environment variable to the main/root direcotry where you have installed J2SDK.

(iii) Run the startup.bat file in the command prompt. Its present in <TOMCAT-INSTALLED-DIR>/bin folder

(iv) Open your browser and type http://localhost:8080. It should work. Just check and make sure you dont have a clash on the PortNumber if your IIS is already running your machine.

Everything has got its own deadline including one's EGO!

tomcat install is a good tutorial if you are using pc.

If you are using mac os x then just install tomcat in /usr/local/tomcat and set permissons.
check the bin directory for sh start and stop script
I agree. Here's the link:
