Operating System - FreeBSD - Release Version 5.0 for Intel Based Processors

Version of Apache was included with the FreeBSD package
Created an alias for directory /export/home/http/OCS/htdocs/MUVE as /muve/

Document Home is /usr/local/www/data (installation default)

When I attempt to access this directory with

I get a directory listing that lists the html file index.html.  Clicking on this file I get
a URL not found failure from a client browser.

Accessing the site as results in an index.html page showing up.

Accessing the site as also results in an index.html page showing up (copied it there).

I hand copied the /icons/ alias for my /muve/ alias.  Checked all the permissions and such
over and over again but still will not allow.  Added a <directory> statement just like
the /icons/ alias and that resulted in displaying the directory for /muve/.  When I take the
<diretory> statement out, I get a Forbidden client result.

Got any ideas??
I get 
Goto and you will get the regular index.html

Goto and you will get the directory with an index.html in it that
won't load?

Goto and you will get the index.html again (as I copied it there)
which I copied and pasted in the httpd.conf file to make the alias /muve/

Weird hunh??  I need the directory for a program to be redirected as /muve/ since the code
is based on this directory.
Tried making another alias under the ServerRoot and that did the same thing.  It is
that is /urs/local/www/mine and also had a directory statement on this one.  I must be missing
something small to have this problem every time.
