Setting interface

Hello!
A while ago me and my friend set up a webserver at my place. It was running win2k with apache and tomcat. We had some problems getting it to serve pages right from outside my LAN. After alot of searching and editing in the config files we finally got it working. I wonder if there is any kind of interface you can use to do these settings? We were/are beginners in this area and searching and editing stuff you have no clue about was hard enough to kill our project.

Privately I've come to appreciate editing httpd.conf by hand. Wouldn't want much gui to get in the way. However, with Tomcat, everything is in xml, which means repetitive syntactical overhead ( observation, not criticism ). What I would like to know, is if there is a decent, open source/free, gui xml editor I can use to modify the conf files like web.xml, et al. That would prevent the annoying tipo errors I face using vi. Thanks.
