Struts with Apache 1.3 & Tomcat 3.2.4

I have Apache working as a frontend for Tomcat. I am now trying to get Struts to work. Everything works ok in Tomcat but when I try to run from Apache all my .do mappings don't work. I think I know what the problem is. Struts documentation talks about inserting a
AddHandler jserv-servlet .do
in tomcat_apache.conf. I do this but since I am copying the automatically generated mod_jk.conf-auto, the change is lost when Tomcat is started. The documentation talks about doing an include of tomcat_apache.conf in httpd.conf but that doesn't apply to me as I am using mod_jk.conf-auto.
Any suggestions?

You could do like I did and copy the generated file to a different name, then tell Apache to use that copy.
The whole auto-generated process seems to have caused more trouble than it was worth. It's gone in Tomcat 4.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
