Apache and Apache Tomcat - Help to setup Tomcat Connector

I'm working on replacing our webserver that currently just runs Tomcat.  We want to have both Apache webserver and Tomcat running this time.  I've got them both installed but can't seem to configure the Tomcat connector properly.  I'm looking for some 'hand-holding' guidance here.  

Thanks.

it would be useful to know what you have tried and see the configuration files.

Agreed.  
So, I have Apache Tomcat 7.0 and Apache 2.2 running (I kept running into problems getting 2.4 to run at the same time as Tomcat).  Operating system is Windows 2008 R2.

Now as far as the Connector goes, I've tried to get it setup a few times.  I've read a lot of these articles on how to configure it, but honestly some I'm just not able to follow too well.  
I've downloaded mod_jk.  There was something I read about having tomcat generate its own config and then using that, but I couldn't find where to do that.  I also am getting stuck with
setting up the workers.properties.

Possibly you meant this site

Unless you have Windows specific requirements, I would tend to run Apache and Tomcat on Linux, both are "ported" to Windows, but written for Linux/BSD/Unix.

I've hit some issues with paths (/ versus \) when getting tomcat applications to run on Windows.

I have virtually no experience in Linux, but am not opposed to changing this server over.  What version would you suggest if I were to swap it?

I'm willing to do that as long as I can make some headway on this project.

Thanks!

I would not recommend moving a production platform to an operating system you have no experience in, but I would choose Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for a "learning" Linux, Debian Stable if you wanted a more tunable distro, and as an alternative, Centos or Scientific if you wanted to go the Redhat router.

If you have a spare machine available, I would put Ubuntu 12.04 on it and see how you get on.

Was the link I posted any use for the Tomcat automatic configuration ?

This job was a bit unique and we decided to go with a third party company to help.  We hired a company out of Montreal that walked me through this migration and setup via remote access.  They were very professional and efficient.

I am closing this question and distributing points to those that helped.

Thanks.
