I've seen this "problem" around, and actually "suffer" it currently on one
machine, but I haven't cared enough to look into it.

Either it is because "localhost" doesn't resolve to, but unless
you messed with I cannot see why it wouldn't, or it could be related to what
interface(s) you have told Apache to listen to.

I saw Barbara Post's reply, and if I remember correctly, this file might be
named "HOSTS.SAM" which you need to rename to simply "HOSTS".
