what has worked for me (for SUN JDK, at least - you can try replacing the the 
sun jdk with IBM jdk):

1) apt-get install fakeroot java-package
2) fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-xxxx.bin 
		(where jdk-xxxx.bin is the sun jdk download.)
3) after some questions, you get a .deb package
4) dpkg -i whatever.deb

then, try installing tomcat4 and whatever else.

hope that helps.
