Ok, a few problems I ran into when trying to install tomcat5 after installing (and subsequently removing) tomcat6 on F14 (and maybe the other way round, too): Starting up the service fails because during installation/removal the tomcat account is not updated according to the version of tomcat currently being installed, so it ends up pointing to the wrong home directory and leaves it disabled.
To fix this, one has to amend tomcat's home directory in /etc/passwd: Change
with your favorite text editor. I also had to change ownership to all tomcat directories
su -c "chown root:tomcat /var/log/tomcat5 /var/lib/tomcat5 /var/cache/tomcat5 /etc/tomcat5"
and change permissions to /var/log/tomcat5
su -c "chmod 775 /var/log/tomcat5"
I don't know if this is also a consequence of the double installation, much the same as I don't know if it's going to be a problem in F12 too (I don't have a F12 installation handy, atm). Just check this out in case you can't manage to start the service after installing tomcat5 in F12.
