first check if it's already running
connect to http://127.0.0.1 from that computer
if it's not running read the manual, if it is and the isuse is getting on the internet
you don't need a static ip unless your router/cable modem/dsl modem won't assign you an ip automatically
read the manual to learn how to configure redhat
you paid for it for a reason (and if you didn't pay for it search google)

You dont need a static ip address, you can always use a dynamic dns service.

Apache isn't running by default on RedHat 9, you can start it up by typing 'service httpd start' from a terminal. Or goto the redhat -> system settings -> server settings -> services. Enable httpd on the runlevel you use. (runlevel 3 if you have a text login, runlevel 5 if you have a graphical login)
