You probably have another httpd listening on 80. Maybe you started it before
and failed to shut it down. Is there a file somewhere (probably
your logs directory?)

You might need to poke around a bit. The commands netstat and ps are your
friends. Try (as root): 

    netstat -pa | grep http

If you previously installed the RedHat default, it is likely that it is
starting on boot.
