Apache serves on localhost, but not the network

I have Apache2 running on my server and can serve up pages on that box, but cannot seem to access them from other PCs on the network.

Any suggestions or ideas?

I'm really new to this, so I won't be insulted if you start very basic...

What address is Apache listening on? (lsof -i TCP:80, last column, before the ":www")

I bet it's "localhost" or "". If so, you need to set Apache's Listen directive to just "80" in httpd.conf and restart Apache.
If it's * or you should be set already and there's something else going on, maybe a firewall.
