There is still no "FollowSyncLinks" option.  You mean "FollowSymLinks".

You do not need the "-Indexes" part.  If indexes is not present on the
line, then they are turned off (as long as the other options on the
line do not use +/-).

The <Directory /www> is correct only if /www is a directory off the
root of your filesystem.  In other words, you can get there by going
"cd /www" at the unix prompt.
