The problem is the other way around - the windows PC needs to be able to resolve the machine
name of the Linux machine (see Hosts file).

Ping from Windows to Linux? If this don't work, http://(ipaddress)/example.html never will
from PC.

Excellent! The webserver is working and you can access it!

It's just that it can't find the file. Try plain old:  http://hostname/ (which will deliver
your DirectoryIndex file (you do have one, don't you?) Do you understand the relationship
between URL and DocumentRoot? If you do, then request a file that you are sure exists in the
docroot.
