This is exactly the configuration I have at home. and it works
perfectly. Rather than "uncomment all the lines in the httpd.conf to do
with a proxy server" why not add the exact directive you need which is:

	ProxyRequests On

That's all you need. Note that this assumes that you have mod_proxy
compiled or linked in...
