If you seeded using 'forrest seed' or another seed command then you do 
have an index.xml file. Of course if you've been setting up the Daisy 
plugin then it may be looking in daisy for it. It is hard to debug 
without dainty on this issue.

Can you please confirm you can run Forrest when it is reading local 
files, then try and get it working using the Dairy plugin -documenting 
each change you make.

Also please confirm the version of Forrest you are using.

It's the Daisy ID of the document that is to act as the index document, 
i.e. http://localhost/index.html
