There are some apache 1.3 tutorials here:
Even though you are probably using 2.0, most of the configuration remains
the same, so they should still be useful.

Two other suggestions:

1. Ask specific questions.  There is no way we can guess what problems you
are running into and what questions you have.  Without at least a basic
idea of your level of knowledge, it is impossible to help you.

2. Consider buying an apache book.  There are many good ones out there.
The online apache docs are very comprehensive, but they tend to start at a
fairly high level.  Many of the books, on the other hand, are better for
learning the basics.
