Making a root folder for JBoss Tomcat 4.1.29

I'm building a new website on Tomcat 4.1.29. I've figured out how to create sub-sites so that the web address is:
http://servername:8080/appname

How do you create a web root folder so that it can be accessed simply with: http://servername/

In the root folder, we also need to place some common CSS and images that can all be accessed by all subsites. (i.e. <img src="/images/photo.jpg">)

In IIS, you simply use the directory structure as needed, but I can't seem to figure out how to do this in Tomcat.

Default root pages for tomcat are placed in $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/ROOT
simplest way is to replace default pages by your's.
Another way is to change path of the default ROOT folder in file $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml
Search for ROOT in that file and replace it by your directory name
