You don't make it clear whether you want to:

1) add an IP address to the machine, 

or whether you want 

2) apache to Listen to an already active address

(you start off stating (1) but then say "it won't work on it's current
IP address" which rather contradicts (1)).

Assuming it's (2) - since it's easier - add "Listen" to the
config (where represents your IP addr).

If it's (2) then you'll need a windows guru to help you; you might look
at the DOS "ipconfig" command to start, although there's probably a GUI
solution too.
