If you want something really simple, try installing Apache from binary packages. FC 2 ought to have installed Yum so from the command line type:

yum install httpd

let it finish -- it should install the startup script so type "service httpd start". Apache now should be running and you will see a test page if you try to connect to your server.

If you're going to be running a Web server (particularly a public Web server) you need to acquire good Linux skills. You should try to get to the point where you can understand the tutorial david_ross linked to. For learning the command line, I highly suggest the Rute tutorial, which you can find at http://www.icon.co.za/~psheer/book ... good luck!

I don't think you need the dot after httpd

/etc/init.d/httpd.start

try

/etc/init.d/httpd start
