No luck so far. I have done the following:
1. modified jpackage.repo commenting out all the sections except
2. run 'yum remove tomcat5*'
3. run 'yum install tomcat4*'
Reports: "No Match for argument: tomcat4"
So this would suggest to me that tomcat4 is no longer available via yum.
Is my next best choice to simply get the tar.gz file and manually set
up the init.d stuff and edit the files to set $Catalina_Home? Remember,
this is my FIRST exposure to Java and the naming conventions boggle the
mind - i.e. java, containers, struts, jakarta, ...

You can get tomcat4 as an rpm through JPackage. The tomcat4 rpm comes
with the files already in init.d, so there is no need to mess around
there. Simply download http://jpackage.org/jpackage.repo
/etc/yum.repos.d and use yum to install tomcat4.
To start or stop a service on startup, use chkconfig. For example,
/sbin/chkconfig --del tomcat5
/sbin/chkconfig --add tomcat4
