I am assuming you see the default page.(thus apache is running, Netscape is finding the page ok)
in your httpd.conf file:
Where is the DocumentRoot pointing to?
(hold that answer)
go to (do not make) a section
<Directory "(insert DocumentRoot here)">
#in that section should be
#(at least, there can be more but who cares)
Restart the httpd process
get thee to a command prompt and "cd" to the DocumentRoot, Please don't tell me you forgot it already.
type at a command prompt (without the double quotes): "mv Index.html index.jl"
Open Netscape and look at http://localhost/

Or to quickly view the directory, simply rename the index page from index.(html? etc) to something else. e.g. (homepage.(html etc)

Note that if you use this format:
It will reset all other Options set above that directory, such as the Include option.
If you want to add Index listing, then use:
This will Add the listing Option to the other Options that may already be set.
Similarly you can remove options using a "-" sign.
