Apache newbie question.. (very newbie question)

Ok, this is almost embarassing to ask, but here goes:

I am in the process of learning apache. I was reading through some documentation and it told me to put my test .html file into the root map of my web server.
Now, I thought I had found the correct place, but I havent and now im frustrated. All I wanted to do was make a test.html page, go to http://localhost/test.html to make sure it was correct. Well, that is easier said than done.

I figured I would ask two questions here:

1) Where would I place this test.html file for localhost in apache version 1.3
2) Where would I place the same test file for localhost in apache version 2.0?

Tarballed, who is going to buy a book on apache ::grunt::

Ummm...Depending on your distrubition it could be in a few places. I run RedHat 8.0 and all my web files are in /var/www/html.
