Please be more specific, what have you downloaded? The sources, the binary or the RPM?

Case 1:
If you have a RedHat and the apache
is RPM, then just:
rpm -ihv apache-1.3.9.i386.rpm (example, filename may vary)
Now you've installed the apachee, and it should already work.
the startup script is in:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd
the config files are in:
/etc/httpd/conf/

Case 2:
If you've downloaded the sources with tar.gz extension then:
gzip -d apache-1.3.9.tar.gz
tar xvf apache-1.3.9.tar
cd apache-1.3.9
../configure
make
now become root and:
make install

In this case all the files are in
/www (or in some other place like /usr/local/www if your provided a prefix).
You can run the httpd from the /www/bin directory and see it working.

when apache is installed you must configure it because at this state it works only basicaly. all you need is to edit the files in the ..../conf directory - it is need to enable the cgi, ssi ... execution, to declare the root of your site , to improve the security, to declare witch modules you want to use ... ; this files are clearly documented ( only one file now in the last distributions ).
You have also an inline documentation.
An other way , simpler, is to use configuration tools like COMANCHE ( grafical ) ... that you can get at www.freshmeat.com or other site of this type
Don't forget to fire up the apache deamon by executing httpd - you can see if it runs by executing "ps x" .

I have downloaded the src.  Installing the RPM is no problem but I am trying to add a module and as it requires modification of the configuration file I had to go with the src route.  I follow the instructions but when i go to run the 'Configure' file in the /src dir it gives me the following error: [webadmin@liquidweb src]$ ./Configure
bash: ./Configure: Permission denied
I have tried everyhting (including running as root but get the same error.  It has to be somehting simple as I have followed instructions exactly yet still receive this.  TIA
