Hello, first post, and 'install/install.page is not available.'

This seems to be a question asked often around here.

I have just setup my Apache2/Tomcat6 server following the directions outlined on howtoforge here.
http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-tomcat6-with-sun-java-and-apache2-integration-on-ubuntu-10.04-lucid-lynx-with-virtual-hosts

I then followed the directions outlined here
http://code.google.com/p/jforum2/wiki/ManualInstallation

Last, I visited localhost/forum/install.jsp and to my grief find
install.page is not available.

I come from the PHP / C/C++ worlds, which is what got me to use jforum, I had a Java class at the Uni and remembered how nice the language was, with it's type checking and advanced IDE and debuggers.

I'm not as familiar with tomcat/apache/jsp however and do need some help.

I'm getting the feeling that I need to define a JSP directory in services.xml?

Again, I'm not sure and unfortunatly I don't have time to read through the hundreds of white Apache whitepages.

I suppose I should gtfo if i can't rtfm thus go back to the world of PHP. =(

I have much to learn before I should even be asking for help.

It's a whole different world from PHP here.

Thanks for providing a place to tap out my thoughts.
