Deployment Issue with WebSphere

Team,
I'm having some trouble with WebSphere. I have a War files that I use with Tomcat 4.1 and I wanted to see if it works with WebSphere.
I tried using the Wizard to deploy the war file. It seems to create an ear directory in installed apps and an application.xml file. However, under the Enterprise Applications node, the Application does not seem to be started. It has a blue dot (like a do-not-enter sign) beside it. I try clicking the messages that appear to save and regenerate paths, but I still have no luck when I try to start the applciation.
Rebooting the server eliminates the blue dot problem. However, the application does not seem to be accessible via the http://localhost:9080/[Context Root]/[War's web.xml mapping]
Ideas?
Thanks

Rightclicking on any EAR or WAR installed under Enterprise Apps will start the app and any server JVM (e.g Default Server) that the app has been deployed on. You should not have to reboot after deployment. If "right click, start" fails then check the files in %WSinstalldir%/logs/ for error messages.

and ..................
right click on web module and select "show status" to check whether the web module is running.
And one more thing. Do you have virtual hosting set up in Apache?

Team... I am aware of this... However, what is the blue do not enter sign?
It doesn't seem to be starting without a reboot.
Thanks

Also, I tried running genPlugInCfg for both the server-cfg.xml and the plugin-cfg.xml.
Server-cfg works, but plugin-cfg throws a null pointer...
How do I fix that.... Uninstall app?

Tony -- I don't understand -- genPluginCfg generates a plugin-cfg.xml from the server-cfg.xml. What were you trying to do exactly?

I'm new to all this, so I was attempting to gen command on the plugin-cfg.xml file... I realize the error of my ways.
I finally got it working... I had to delete the servlet.jar (old spec) file and place the tlds in the WEB-INF/lib directory.
Thanks for the help on that.
I'm now getting some RMI errors. I'm using RMI to communicate to the middle tier... I need to do some more looking in order to formulate a question.
Thanks again.
