RE: looking for complete tomcat 5.5.26 rpm

well, to stay within their repos' you are stuck with things like 
PHP-5.1.6, tomcat -5.5.20 etc.. 
I must also say that I was a Debian sysadmin for the last 5 years before 
getting this job, so I am no expert at RPMs, and am having a hard time 
adjusting to YUM... On a server with no GUI, dselect was my best 
friend ... far more intuitive than what I have see of YUM... but that 
may be my inexperience with the RPM system showing ;)
