Looks fine.. (I presume you know that "AllowOverride None" switches off
.htaccess files in that directory). 

What do you have for DocumentRoot - remember that the docroot maps to
the server name in the URL, i.e.

	DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs

means that


will go straight to /usr/local/apache/htdocs/kiwi.html. Maybe your
docroot doesn't lead to this htdocs directory? 

Other things to check:

what permissions do you actually have on the htdocs directory (should be
readable by Apache user - or even world-readable)? What does it say in
the error_log?
