Is apache even running? A little more details on your setup, what you've tried or done helps us out as we are not psychic of what your problem and solution is?

Depending on the configuration this may be caused by the fact that there is not a index file in the directory defined as DocumentRoot in the httpd.conf and you have autoindexing disabled.

Check these directives in your httpd.conf

DocumentRoot -
This is the directory in which apache looks for your site.

DirectoryIndex -
This is the order in which your server will chose the default index page.

Once you know the location of DocumentRoot check it to see if there is an index file. If not, cd to your DocumentRoot directory and type:

echo "Apache Test Page" >> index.html
This will create an index file and you should be able to see it by going to the domain setup on this machine. (If this was your problem to begin with)

I know this sounds silly, but are you blocking port 80 inbound ? Firewall settings? Also, if you have a hardware router, is port 80 "pointing" to the IP address of your apache server machine?

Also, also, are you using DNS to resolve your IP address in the web browser? Try using the actual dotted IP address of the server machine, or the actual IP address of the router (if you're using one).
