Trent - are you trying to start apache as root?  It will start as root to
bind to 80.  regular users won't bind to the port.

(as an aside, if you built apache from source, it won't put scripts in
/etc/rc.d/*, you'll have to do that yourself, either by setting the
symlinks by hand or by putting a chkconfig header in the apachectl
script and running "chkconfig apachectl on" or similar.)
