Ok, let's start from there.
First, let's see if Apache is running.
When you enter the following command :

netstat -pan | grep '\:80'

it should at least show one line.  That line corresponds to the port on 
which Apache should be listening.
Toward the end of the line, should be the name of the program, and it's 

You call also try either one of those :
ps -ef | grep httpd
ps -ef | grep apache

(I don't remember if under RH Apache appears as httpd or apache2)

Once you make sure that there is an Apache running, then you could try 
the following :
enter the command :
telnet 80
GET / HTTP/1.0

(the second line above, you have to enter "blind", because there will be 
no echo; the third line is just a "return")
Do you get something ?
