Hi and many thanks for your prompt reply.  I believe in trying to be as
polite as possible when it comes to asking for help from strangers.  Anyway
on with my problem.......

You are absolutely correct in your assumptions, so far.  A bit more detail
on my problem.  I can install the programme properly, it's just when it asks
for a server and domain name whilst installing it that I fall flat on my
face.  I have entered something to try and point it to my own created file
on my pc yet it won't have it.  So i have put in anything and tried to
change the config file to reflect this.  Obviously I haven't got a server or
domain at the moment.  I just want to use the programme to teach myself a
new programming language that hopefully i will be using at some point in the
future.

Again thanks in advance.

Well, at least you ask nicely and you say thanks in advance. 2 bonus points.

 From the above, I will venture to guess that you have a PC with 
Windows, and that you downloaded your Apache from here :
http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi
and that you picked the one named
Win32 Binary without crypto (no mod_ssl) (MSI Installer)
and that you saved this as a file somewhere on your PC.
Right ?

If so, did you install it ? (double-click on the file, etc..) ?
Yes ?

If so, what happens when you open your browser and enter the URL
http://localhost
?
