check for port number in httpd.conf 
  normal default is 7777 
  in that case you should use localhost:7777
  change the  port to 80 in httpd.conf

system information would be helpful as well.


P.S. To find out where to put your files, check your httpd.conf file and look for the following.
It will tell you where apache looks for files:

DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents"

That's how it looks on my system (Mac OS X). It may be different for your system. Whatever
"DocumentRoot" says, that is where to put your files. You then access them like http://localhost/hello.htm
l. But you have to ensure the server is running in the background.
