I got it working now !!!
I can access for example My music folder using the following address: http://localhost
how can I have other people access this throught my computer's ip address ?

Thanks

you welcome

2 possibilites

1) have em type in their browser http://yourip or http://yourip:port if you changed the default port (80)

2) sign up at a free dynamic dns provider, then youll have a hostname for example you.mydns.com and youll be able to make it point to your ip either manually or by downloading the dns provider ip update software then its just http://your.mydns.com .. . its much easier to remember a hostname than an ip also its very usefull if you got a dynamic ip (an ip that changes everytime you reconnect) i recommend these providers
www.changeip.com
www.myserver.org
www.dyndns.dk
www.myip.us
www.yi.org
www.g0t.de

oh and of course you must configure your firewall right otherwise it wont be possible to remotly connect to your webserver

and just incase you dont know how to get your internet ip address , goto start-->run-->cmd and do ipconfig /all or simply goto this site http://www.whatsmyip.org/

How could I make them access the same page by typing my ip address on the browser ?

you sure you puted the right ip? also did you set up your firewall right? as i said before you must config it right otherwise no remote user will be able to connect to your webserver, you might wanna temporarily disable it just to get it checked
