Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am afraid I don't use gedit and unable to say why this maybe occuring, it could be similar to notepad and have a limited file size, however in a terminal vi or nano should be able to browse the httpd configuration entire file.
Tried all that, no change. Starts fine from command line, so it appears to be functioning well.
I'm wondering if the config file in apache2 got radically changed? I've used apache 1.x, and the config file was a lot bigger than this. But if my gedit is working, then it would seem that the file is shorter than expected.
I'm trying to find something about it in the docs at apache.org, but nothing so far. Will update if I learn anything new.
Perfect. I don't know these little tidbits, so I appreciate them very much. Turns out the config file has been greatly shortened since I last used Apache, and that was on a Windows machine. The config file now relies on a series of modular includes that I didn't know about.
Anyhow, my gedit is working just fine, it was the file, not the editor. Problem solved.
Thanks to all for the tips, they are all getting filed for future reference!
