It seems you're out of luck. You can disable the parent entry by using
"IndexIgnore ..", but as far as I can see, there is no way "unignore" it.

mod_autoindex is intentionally not very flexible, because what it does is
soo simple. If you really don't want the parent entry in the listing, you
can make a Perl or PHP script rather quick, that behaves and look exactly
like you want.

Well, seems like I should learn some PHP and Perl to make such script,
anyway thanks for your reply. Maybe a little suggestion for future
Apache/mod_autoindex versions: allow to put 'Parent Directory' link per
directory instead how is done now (parent entry always appears):)
