As you can see, the actual response you get is a 403 Forbidden.  This  
is the way Red Hat and its derivatives serve the default test page:  
in absence of an actual /var/www/html/index.html, Apache would serve  
the directory index, which is forbidden by /etc/httpd/conf.d/ 
welcome.conf.  The corresponding line in the error log file is:

[Tue Jan 16 11:40:08 2007] [error] [client] Directory  
index forbidden by rule: /var/www/html/

You say that you commented out the welcome.conf stuff (and restarted  
Apache, right?), and yet you are still sending out 403s.  What error  
log entries are you getting when you try to access / on your server?
