It depends on what you mean under clustering.
If a simple load balancing is enough for you (multiple tomcats behind one apache) then I would go for a mod_jk or mod_jk2 apache connectors for tomcat. They're easy to use and you can set load balancing bias for each tomcat instance or you can have each tomcat serving a different context., no matter if they're running on one or more computers.
It should also boost your performance, because apache is a lot faster in serving static content.
If I were you, I would consider using tomcat 4.1.10 and also trying apache 2.0.
