You need to add the Indexes option to Options and restart your service.

You're requesting the / path, which will cause Apache to serve  
whatever is set in DirectoryIndex (usually index.html) or, in its  
absence, construct a directory listing IF it is allowed to (see above).

If the operating system doesn't allow httpd to read a file, you'll  
get a different error in the log.  The error.log is exactly the right  
place to look for that kind of stuff.
