Localhost over my network

I have installed XAMPP on my other computer through the network and I have some questions about this:

#1. Is it alright to install to a harddrive on the network? I mean, my php.ini file and stuff gets on my workstation c:/..But it seams to work because it is starting php and mysql.

#2 And now to the main problem! How do I reach the localhost through a network. Now it is looking locally. I do not use a proxy server just a NAT one. Can I do something like HTTP://computername/localhost or something???

Thankful for any help I could get in this matter!

no, because localhost is or the IP of ur PC.
localhost is not routet.
If u type this in ur Browser "HTTP://computername" or the IP of the Computer where the HTTP Server runs then u get the "start page" of this HTTP Server.

So this means that I have to install XAMPP from the servercomputer? And not through the network like I have it now?

Because now it does not work with http://ipnumber or computername where the XAMPP are located. My mozilla says: 'The conncetion was refuse while connecting to 'my servers ip number''

do you have firewall software on your server?

Yes sir...But it should be totally open for the other computer..

But I maybe should try to install from the server-computer instead...

Yeah, I don't know about it and tutorial is too poor.
So, I changed httpd.conf

ServerName :
Listen : 80
and other files in install + xampp
