  I don't have access to the DNS stuff, sucks being a peon sometimes.
At least I know I did it right!

You just don't have the hostname set up in your DNS. Apache now knows
its hostname, but the rest of the network doesn't. Go on to your DNS
configuration. Are you running your own DNS or are you using another
