Changing the Port on Tomcat

I'm running Linux (Debian 4).  I want to change the Listen port on Tomcat5 so that it listens on port 80.

This seems to be a matter of simply editing the server.xml file and changing the port of "8180" to "80".

But this doesn't work for some reason.  After changing the port, I reboot the system and find that tomcat is not listening on port 80.

I thought the problem might be a conflict with some other service, such as Apache, but Apache is not running.  I type netstat -ldp and find that nothing is listening on port 80.  

Anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

The user who is starting the process might not have sufficient privileges to
listen to port 80. The user should be superuser or equivalent to do that.
