First of all it's better to always d/l the latest version (it's 1.3.33 for apache-1). Then change to the directory you extracted the tar.gz and run:
./configure --some-options
make install (as root)

You are going to install a software that need compilation
configuration before make it.

First of all, do ./configure --help in the /root/apache_1.3.23 directory
you will see all available configure options

To configure it with default options, just run :

After the software configured for compilation, you can :
make install compile and install apache
