    what are you typing at the other computers to try to access the web server. if you are typing in localhost that mite not work because there mite be more then one system on you lan with the host name localhost. either you should possible change the hostname or jst type in the ip of the computer that hosts the web site http://ip this should do it. and to find out the ip if you dont know is su over to root and then type in ifconfig. the ip that is under the device eth0 is the one you want. if this dont work let us know and i will see what i can come up with. hope this helps
