Tomcat 5.0 and Apache 2.0

Ah, the joys of open source software. For various reasons I'm trying to connect Apache Tomcat 5.0 to serve through Apache 2.0.

What is scuppering me is the usual open source problem that the documentation isn't keeping up with the software. Delving into the Tomcat 5 documentation is frustrating, because as soon as you click on any link relating to Apache integration (for instance the section on JK2) you are taken to the 4.0 documentation. So far, the only thing I have been able to discover with any confidence is that the intstructions for linking Tomcat 4.0 and Apache 2.0 don't work with Tomcat 5.0. But then I could have guessed that.

Anyone got any suggestions? Or should I just run Tomcat 4.1?
