chkconfig merely manipulates the files and symlinks located
in /etc/init.d and /etc/rc[0-6].d folders (well and
sometimes /etc/xinet.d/stuff).  You'll have to check in /etc/init.d to
see what script corresponds to httpd.  Likely you'll want to make sure
your custom init script is called "httpd-custom" or something and then
configure it separately.  Configure httpd to be off all the time and
httpd-custom to be on at the appropriate runlevel.
