How to create main / index page

Its been a few years since i produced a website - i have a question about the Index page.    I created a page that is supposed to open first called Index.html    - when i go to the site i get a listing of all files, and the index.html does not open automatically.

Is there something i am supposed to do to the Index page to make it open when the site is accessed?  

I am using dreamweaver.

Is this on a hosted server or your own?  What web server software are you using?

Sounds like the default home page has not been set.

I figured out that i was spelling Index with a capital (Index vs index) and that if i changed it to lower case it now works.    Thanks for your input - I will divide the points.
