Question:  Are you using the RPM install which comes with RH or did you
build it from source?

If the RPM, just do /etc/init.d/httpd start as root and you'll be off...

if via source code, you'll need to cd to your httpd bin dir, and execute
apachectl start

Nevermind that xinetd stuff... good to learn about as you'll more than
likely use, but it's you're just worried about apache right now, don't
worry about it.
