    I am from windows and I am finding this a pain in the butt!!! to say
    the least.

    I have a book on linux and i have tried to find docs from Apache and
    Red Hat on how to setup and start the Apache webserver.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    I know I need to start the server some how but it asks me to supply an
    IP Address. I can't find the command that will give this to me.

    Red Hat 9.0 and the apache version that came with it.

    Patience. While both Windows and Linux are "operating systems" there are a
    lot of differences. Kind of like speaking English well and wondering you
    can't learn German in one easy lesson. I mean, both of them are
    "languages" after all!

    For the quick and dirty lesson under RH9:

    1. Edit the Apache server settings in
    (set domain name, admin info, etc.)

    2. Add the index and other web page files to:
    /var/www/html directory

    3. Start (or restart) the Apache server with command:
    /sbin/service httpd start

    Or, from the menu, use this program:
    System Settings - Server Settings - HTTP Server
