With FC5, apache should work out of the box.

First, from a terminal (I guess you need to be root, or sudo the commands), see if the http daemon is running (don't type the #'s):

#ps aux | grep httpd

if not, set it to start on boot

#chkconfig httpd on

and start it

#service httpd start

then try pointing your browser, and you should get a generic blank fedora/apache page up.

For ftp, which package did you install? vsftp seems pretty standard

Look in /etc/vsftpd and make any changes to vsftpd.conf and make any changes you want (it's a pretty user friendly config file).

Then set the daemon to start at boot

#chkconfig vsftpd on

and start it

#service vsftpd start

That should be about it for a basic setup.

Remember that if you want to access from outside, you will need to modify the firewall to allow port 80 and 21. I think if you use gnome, that you'll find suitable settings there under security settings (but I don't use the gui).
