With the Fedora Core 3 httpd package?  This is because the SELinux
policy will deny httpd access to any unlabelled files by default.  See:

and either label the files:

 # chcon -R system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t /home/httpd/webdev

to fix the issue, or permanently disable the SELinux policy for httpd:

 # setsebool -P httpd_disable_trans=1

(make sure you're using the latest libselinux package from the updates)
