Hi, Hmm, I didn't know that you're not managing this box ;) I'm actually a Linux SysAdmin and not a big specialist in mod_jk ;) What version of RedHat it is? What application do you want to run on Tomcat behind Apache Httpd?
If you want I could help your SysAdmin with compilation and basic configuration.
