Tomcat SSL

Testing the latest Windows installation document for the grid node. The goal is to create a clear and simple guide for users to get a grid node up and running quickly. The primary issues I am running into are all in the certificate/SSL area.

It seems to me we could link to the installation documents already written by Apache on configuring SSL with Tomcat in a pre-requisite section. There are so many variables like the user account running tomcat, where to store the keystore file, whether they can use a 3rd party certificate or self-signed, is there load-balancing, etc. Either way, once a user has Tomcat running with a certificate then they could begin stepping through our Globus installation.

Basically I think we should not duplicate existing documentation, and it will allow us to focus on Globus.
