If all your webpages are static and you don't use any URL aliases, redirects etc, then yes, you can simply drop the entire contents on Apache.

As to the location, it depends on what version of Redhat you are talking about any whether any of the defaults have been changed.

if you do

grep -i documentroot /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

it should tell you where your document root is.

as Tintin says the pages have to be static for this to work.
Look at the file extensions.

Does anything end .asp or .inc ?
If you see even oe file with this extension it will have to be rewritten or you will need to install extra stuff to make it work.

The best bet is to copy it over and check it.  If it all works then you can switch over
