Have you modified the httpd.conf?

Make certain of the case and spelling of 'index.html' - it must be the
same as it is defined in the httpd.conf.

	DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var

You can add index.htm to the list if that is what you called your index.

Be certain that you have not saved the file as unicode - the file must
be ASCII text only.
