Can't access webserver via ip in internal network

I am posting this in the newbie section as I am new to creating a webserver.

I have created a server using Fedora (version says 3.5.8-7.fc8)
I installed mysgl and apache properly (that I know of)
I installed a forum (simple machines) and am able to access it from the server using //localhost but I cannot use // from any machine on my network. They are all under the same subnet.
I checked my firewall to ensure that port 80 is open and it is. I have my router forwarding all traffic for port 80 to my server in preperation to have a domain pointed to my ip. I was wondering if I am missing something. I thought once I had it set up, all I had to do was type in my local ip from a machine on my network and it would let me pull it up.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

well, I thought someone would have posted by now.
more info.
I get a 400 bad request error now. I tried making sure the virtual hosts was set up. All of the information is there.
I am wondering though. In the HTTP Server Configuration I try to add an Available Address to listen on but when I do, HTTPD will not restart properly and I get the following error

Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any help?

If you expect 70 minute turnaround, pay for support

You have stuffed up your listen directives in you config I would guess.

Edit - You will find the following is not the case, unless you think installation is just dumping software on a system
I installed mysgl and apache properly (that I know of)
