question hopefully, how does it know where to look for web applications, is it set in some xml file?
I have tomcat installed in ../servers/tomcat
I use netbeans to create a web app, which creates it in ../NetBeansProjects/WebApplication1

Things are a little different when you're using the embedded version of Tomcat that ships with a particular IDE.
For a default, standalone instance of Tomcat, the engines and hosts are defined in tomcat/conf/server.xml.
