It pretty much works out of the box, and IMO its own documentation is very good already, even for newbies.
Come back when you run into specific problems.

If you've used MS personal web server, notepad, and can read a HOW-TO, you can configure Apache in an hour without any previous experience.

OK this is a really quick and dirty guide, check out the documentation if you want more details
grab the latest apache slackpack from linuxpackages.net
http://www3.linuxpackages.net/packag...-i486-1rob.tgz

install it:
upgradepkg --install-new apache2-2.0.49-i486-1rob.tgz

start the server:
sh /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start

thats it, fire up a browser and open http://localhost, you should see apache introduction page, the default document root is /var/www/htdocs so this is where you put your files, and configuration file is /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
you can see the documentation in http://localhost/manual
