User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
If you want help from tomcat, you get:

    [root@localhost ~]# tomcat --help
    tomcat: unrecognized option -- `--help'
    Try `tomcat --help' for more information.

And what actually works is:

    [root@dev-srv5 /]# tomcat -help
    Usage: tomcat [OPTION]

      -config FILE      use this alternative configuration file
      -help             display this help and exit
      -home DIR         run catalina from within DIR
      -logfile FILE     log messages to this file
      -nonaming         don't use JNDI
      -pidfile FILE     file to write the process ID to
      -user UID         run the daemon as user UID
