Just a shot in the dark, but might you have the version of IIS that came 
with WinXP Pro installed already?  If so, Apache and IIS may be fighting 
over which one runs as your webserver.  I've got Apache 1.3.28 and 2.0.47 
installed on my system for testing and both work well, though I don't have 
IIS or .NET installed.
