Hi,

Drupal has installed successfully, and I can get to the home page ok. When I click on any link such as:

http://localhost/drupal-6.6/?q=admin/settings

I get this instead of the web page... Any Ideas why?

Index of /drupal-6.6

This gets back to Apache at the core. The following could be off:
1) Apache is not allowing you to do any overrides in the .htaccess file (Solution: correct this to AllowOverrides all in your apache configuration)
2) Apache does not have mod_rewrite installed or enabled (Solution: check that mod_rewrite is available and turned on)
3) Your server is expecting the .htaccess file to be named something else. Commonly, apache on windows installs might use htaccess.txt instead. (Solution: check your apache config for the AccessFileName directive and rename the .htaccess to that)

Just use XAMPP and you'll avoid all those issues.
