Converting from Apache 1.3 to 2.0

Hi I'm converting from Apache 1.3 to 2.0 and am running into troubles.   The first problem is my home page does not show up.   Is their a way I can set the defaut document,   (no vitural serves are installed)   The system is running Redhat Enterprise 3.0 and is new install.  It was running Redhat 7.3 previously and apache 1.3 without issue.     I have set the document root in many places in the config file.   My first page should be menu.cgi

You need to set your DirectoryIndex like:

DirectoryIndex menu.cgi index.html index.htm index.php

etc. so that it knows in what order to search for that base page.
