If you want to take advantage of the high degree of stability of 10.04
you should probably think about using the 'tomcat6' package in Lucid,
which is v6.0.24 + patches for critical issues.

However if you have some specific reason to use tomcat 5.5 .. then you
are on your own as far as recommendations.. how can we help you choose?
