"website url"? would that be http://server or http://server/?

That looks like a wrong mime-type.. Can you check the response header
(eg, via LiveHTTPHeaders extension in FireFox)? 

BTW, what *exactly* is the browser prompting you to save (ie, the "home
page")?

Something to do with apache's self-referential URLs and/or the
directory-indexing mechanism...

Check out these two directives:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#usecanonicalname
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_dir.html#directoryindex

If, after digesting the information therein and trying a few things, it
still "doesn't work", post back. If you can, quote the headers returned
by the server.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
