I dont know perfectly if this will work under your system, but I had the same sort of issue
and I renamed the index.html file to WHATEVER YOU WANT, example being index.htmm and then
just include the index.htmm in your DirectoryIndex directive and this will cause index.html
to not be loaded first, and instead it will load ONE OF THE OTHERS first, which I believe
may be .htm, and if you did the same thing for it, it would load .shtml first... This is a
work around that I know of, but there may be some way that is MUCH easier that a more advanced
apache user may know of... But if all else fails, try this method...

  I modified my httpd.conf with a DirectoryIndex as follows:
    DirectoryIndex index.shtml index.html index.htm home.html home.htm
  I expected this would cause the index.shtml file to be used first if found, otherwise the
index.html file and so on down the line.  This is not working for me.  It will not use the
index.shtml file automatically.  Am I doing something wrong here, or are my expectations unreasonable?

  I am running Apache 1.3.26 on Unix.

  In a unix environment, (. . .I don't know about MS/Windows)
  You can add the "DirectoryIndex" directive to the httpd.conf file to direct Apache
  to recognize either spelling as per:

      DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm

  Note that this directive is global, i.e., NOT included within any directory container.
  Traditionally(?), this directive may be found in an access.conf file, but can be
  included in the httpd.conf file.)

    The default supplied Apache package page is index.html and if you were using
    the Microsoft equivalent you might have an index.htm - the .html takes
    precedence over .htm files unless you change this in the httpd.conf file!!!

    That might be it - just rename the index.html file (if there is one) to
    old.html or something and see if it cures it.
