If you add that DirectoryIndex line to your conf, you won't need to
include index.html on the end, it'll be assumed by the server.

Those are the ones that work best. ;-)

Are you running Windows XP?  It could be the internal firewall that
was added in SP2.  You can enable access to your Apache server by
right-clicking "My Network Places" on your desktop and choosing
Properties. Then right-click the network adapter that's connected to
the Internet and choose Properties again.  Click the Advanced tab and
click the Settings button.  Is the firewall On?  Good, leave it like
that. :)  Click the Exceptions tab, then click the Add Port button. 
In the Name box, type Apache, in the port box, type 80 and make sure
to choose TCP.  You should be able to access it now.
