Running Tomcat on port 80 as nonroot

I'm looking for a way to run Tomcat as a non-root process yet still be able to service http requests on port 80. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The perfect solution is to do it with apache. Apache will take care of html and cgi and all jsp files will be handled by Tomcat.

How to do it, best described on jakarta website:
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html
