And you're starting Apache as root, right? If you try to run it as a 
non-root user, it won't be able to bind to ports below 1024. (You could 
even check this by changing the line that says "Port  80" to something like 
8080 instead.)

Aside from looking at the init scripts, you can also check to see what 
you've actually got running, right now, with the command "pstree". But if 
nmap found nothing open except ports 111 and 6000, then I suspect that's 
not the problem.
