Haa... thanks, yes that did it.  Now about that log message:

  [Tue Oct 04 19:32:57 2005] [error] [client] Directory
  index forbidden by rule:
  referer: http://reader.local.net0/hpweb/TrainingVids/

Is there some way I could have made apache tell me what `rule' as in 
`forbidden by rule:' above, has been violated?

I tried setting log level to debug but saw nothing more.

Speaking of log messages... I keep seeing this in error_log:

[Tue Oct 04 19:38:03 2005] [error] [client] File does not
exist: /var/www/localhost/htdocs/favicon.ico

How can I tell what is looking for this file.  And where to get it?
