When I did our development installation, I wrote some documentation for it
(using the Sphinx project [1]).
I exported it to HTML files and attached it as a tarball
("grouper_install.tgz"). You can view it in a standard web browser.

The instructions are specific to some of the configurations we considered
specifically at Lafayette College, so they may not be totally generic, but
they may provide you with some hints.

When I installed the quick start on my desktop, it downloaded tomcat and
integrated it in the installer directory. Everything was loaded up as a
consequence of the QuickStart process. From there the demo ran nicely.

Since I am having trouble installing Grouper on the intended linux test
server, I came back to the Desktop demo, but discovered grouper did not
load as expected when using the start/stop tomcat commands. I discovered
it will not load from there - it can not find its way to several libraries
or files.

When using the QuickStart installer, it proceeds from installing the UI, to
downloading a bundled version of apache tomcat. In the install process, I
don't recall where I was asked to specify /usr/share/tomcat6 as the target
for the build (I am assuming a configuration file), but it does appear that
I need the embedded version of tomcat in the installation process. Am I
right about that?

I have read through several installation pages and somehow I have not found
(again) the page that addresses the way in which tomcat is included and
why. I am not sure if any of the other installation examples (outside of
quick start) are what I should be using instead.

I seem to be going in circles in the documentation.
