I'm not very experienced with running Apache from the console nor Windows
9x/ME, so my comments might be a bit off.

The "syntax ok" message seems to indicate to me that you are only running a
syntax check (eg. with the -t option), not starting the server. If you want
to start it, open a command prompt, cd to Apache's bin directory, and enter

Look at a process listing to see if Apache.exe is there. Also, look in
Apache's error log; it should log some stuff when it starts/stops.

What error? If you are using Internet Explorer, disable the "friendly HTTP
error messages" option in advanced preferences; it only obscures what is
really going on.

When you make a request, you can look in the access log to see if it comes
through to Apache.
