Apache Installation/Configuration

I installed Apache 1.3.37 from Source
These are the commmands I used:

tar -xzvf /root/Desktop/compressedfile.tar.gz
cd compressedfiledirectory/
make install

I thought everything went well.
Now, I can't find the /etc/httpd/ directory
I can't find any of the config files for Apache
What's going on

P.S. I am not using Apache 2 b/c I can't find a lot of documentation on it

I am using RedHat Linux Enterprise Release 4

I don't think the default location is in /etc/httpd. I'm not to sure what the default is, but have you tried checking in /usr/local ?

If you want /etc/httpd as the install location, you can specify it when you do your ./configure

./configure --help should give you a list of switches that can be used.
