Here's a mini-install guide for Ubuntu:

The thread starts out with Alfresco 3 but moves on to Alfresco 4. Regards, Joe

I'm not an expert on Apache or Tomcat, so let's hope some experts jump in, but my modest understanding is that Apache and Tomcat can coexist as long as they're not on the same port (such as both being on 80 or both on 8080). Regards, Joe

Apache and tomcat can co-exist and I have several production and test environments running tomcat as the application server and apache as the web front end.  I even have a test environment with apache as the frontend with alfresco/tomcat.

By default tomcat wont use the standard web ports, it normally has a html front end (coyote) running on 8080 and an ajp port on port 8009.  Normally we would use apache as the web front end and connect it to tomcat using the mod_ajp_proxy module:

This module talks to the ajp port (8009).  So install this module and then add configure apache to talk to alfresco:

    <IfModule proxy_ajp_module>
        ProxyPass /alfresco ajp://localhost:8009/alfresco
        ProxyPassReverse /alfresco ajp://localhost:8009/alfresco
        ProxyPass /share ajp://localhost:8009/share
        ProxyPassReverse /share ajp://localhost:8009/share
