In the bare install, there is nothing in /var/www/html, and

Options -Indexes

forbids to serve directory listing.  So you get the 403, which is the  
"yay I'm using Red Hat" page.

And it's logged in error_log as a 403.  At log level "error", so your  
default catches it.  The fact that you're not seeing that is very,  
very weird.
