[Deploying Sakai] Sakai fails to load.

I'm confused as to how I'm supposed to do this.
>From the wiki page, it seems that I need to install openjdk 7,
then download the Tomcat Core distribution and unpack it to /opt,
then download the Sakai binary distribution and unpack it to /opt/tomcat,
then write a script that will set CATALINA_HOME correctly and add it to
then configure tomcat so it will use UTF-8 for its encoding, add the old
to the loader, and set JAVA_OPTS.
Finally, I need to run /opt/tomcat/bin/daemon.sh start, at which point
tomcat will start
and Sakai should work.
However, this doesn't work. The wiki is quite unclear on what to do, and it
is odd that
Sakai would require a nonstandard installation. Are the systems
administrators around
the world using Sakai on Linux really manually installing Tomcat?
That's hard to believe.
Can you please explain to me, step by step, what I need to do from a
vanilla Debian install
to obtain a server running Sakai 2.9.3? The wiki seems to be giving
incorrect instructions.
Especially considering it gives differing values for JAVA_OPTS.

Please, this is already the third week that I'm trying to install Sakai,
and it's not working.
With hope,
