[vox] apache + hardware problem?

I've been trying to install apache + PHP on a laptop with a fresh install
(RH9.0) and I get connection refused when trying to connect to localhost.

Here's what I did:
Clean install of OS, installed and tested MySQL -OK.
after uncompressing PHP & apache, ran configure for apache
./configure --prefix=/usr/local

went to php directory ran: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-mysql

ran make and make install for PHP

deleted old config.status file in apache and ran:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local

ran make and make install for apache. After starting httpd - "connection
refused when connecting to localhost". My /etc/hosts file appears to have
correct entry for localhost.
 It was suggested to me that there might be a
problem with apache looking for a newtork card. On boot, the machine
complains about the Xircom combo card, yet I have no trouble connecting to
internet via the ethernet connection.

Any thoughts?
