Well to be honest, tomcat is the best JSP server that you can find for development purposes. And it is pretty easy to use.
The only problem that people have is understanding the structural view of the Tomcat.

locate the folder where you insalled Tomcat
for instance if you have installed Tomcat at
c:\tomcat
you should be able to see a folder called
c:\tomcat\webapps
You can create a new folder under the webapps(folder).... for instance
c:\tomcat\webapps\newfolder

now place your JSP pages in the new folder ... run tomcat
and then try and view the pages by entering URL like

http://localhost:8080/newfolder/pagename.jsp
What i would like to hear from you is that

If your running a Linux box, let me know what problem you have setting up tomcat. I just successfully set tomcat to work with apache to serve up my JSP pages

I've used both Tomcat and Macromedia's JRun (free trial available), and I thought JRun was easier and had a pretty good management interface.  It costs some decent coin though.  Tomcat is going to be the best free one you can get.

Here is a short tutorial I wrote for Tomcat+JSP+MySQL on Linux if it helps:
