Can you help me use pound as a reverse proxy and load balancer?

I have a server running Debain with Hiawatha Webserver and Pound installed. I have hiawatha listening on port 8080. "wget 127.0.0.1" downloads the page i currently have up there, so I know for sure that hiawatha is working. I'm trying to get Pound to listen at port 80 and pass on hiawatha, i.e., proxy to port 80.
Here is pound.cfg.
It's not working at the moment. "wget 127.0.01:80" gets "Connecting to 127.0.0.1:80... failed: Connection refused." It's not an issue with port 80 because hiawatha works fine if I configure it to listen at port 80 and stop pound. I'm also pretty sure it's not a firewall or port forwarding problem. I have restarted pound since I changed to configuration file.
I want to maybe eventually use load balancing. The big thing right now, though, is that I want to be able to have some other web application (like Diaspora or etherpad) listening at a port that is not port 80 and to be able to proxy it over to a domain name. If I can't this simple configuration to work, though, something tells me that won't work either. I would be forever grateful if you could tell me (a) what I'm doing wrong or (b) a different, simple way to do what I'm trying to do. Thanks!
