So ... It Works

You don't say how you installed these, and some installers do things a little 
different, but you are looking for the folder 'htdocs' somewhere which will have 
the 'It Works!' page currently.

httpd.conf is the file you would need to edit to point to different location, 
but for now I'd just find htdocs and copy stuff to there.

? Sounds like you are trying to install the linux version of apache on windows? 
There is no point. If you are having problems on Linux, most distributions have 
their own packages for apache, php and mysql ...
