How to setup a webserver at home  ( Redhat 9)

This might be an old question but can anyone show me step by step how to make my webserver go online.  I'm able to see the Apache test page when I type http://localhost in the browser.  I have a cable internet with a static IP address. I have a Linksys router.  In the router config, I have opened port 80 and pointed it to this computer. I can connect to my webserver from outside when I run Window. But if I switch to Redhat, type in my IP, the browser doesn't know where to go.

Thank in advance
