Unhappy A newbie looking for more apache-related help

I managed to get the RPM of the latest 1.3 apache on my 7.3 linux, and installed, etc, but after configuring apacheconf and opening mozilla to my site, it says "server not reachable." But then I try the address with the "lynx" command in a terminal and it works fine (save the images.)

What could be wrong here? The error it generates says that they could not find the URL...

help this

apachectl status shows that the server is actually working and running.

However, when I type, it returns the error

Can not connect you to the server, apparently the server is running, etc, but not accepting the connection...
telnet doesn't seem to work either - "connection refused"

yet, the "lynx" command to works fine, why is this?

try http://localhost:8080
i think apache comes with port8080 setup(it varies with versions)
u have to change it to 80(probably in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf)
