Have a single action class called "Setup" which extends DispatchAction so that you can have your own custom methods : setupIndex()  and  SetupSubscription()

public class Setup extends DispatchAction {

// common code  for  index *webpage*  and   subscription webpage  goes here
          // setup header.jsp (put things inr equest ...)
         // setup menu_left.jsp
         // setup index content
         // ...

//custom method : setupIndex
    public ActionForward setupIndex(
                    ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
                    HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
                    throws Exception {
//other specific logic for setUpIndex
return  mapping.findForward("SetupIndexPage");  //forwards to index page


//custom method : setupSubscription
public ActionForward setupSubscription (
                    ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
                    HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
                    throws Exception {
//other specific  logic for setupSubscription
return  mapping.findForward("SetupSubscriptionPage"); //forwards to SetupSubscription Page


hope that helps
