I have modified parts of Apache's server code to allow it to detect which 
browser is requesting a directory, and return a different index file based 
on which browser it is.  It uses a new .htaccess option called 
"DirectoryDetectIndex" which takes two arguments, the index filename, and a 
substring of the browser which that index file should be served to.  This 
patch is currently a drop in replacement for the mod_dir.c file in the 
Apache 0.8.16 release.  I cannot guarentee that it will work for everyone. 

Questions/Comments should be directed to the 
comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix newsgroup.
