Hi,
I have a working domain, FacialSurgery.com.  I'm trying to install Wordpress on that domain, so a visitor will see the blog ON that domain.  I installed Wordpress into /path/to/FacialSurgery/root/blog so that I can go to http://www.FacialSurgery.com/blog/readme.html and see it.  I can also go to http://www.facialsurgery.com/blog/wp-admin/index.php and see my dashboard.

The problem is: I cannot figure out how to see the blog itself.  If I go to http://www.FacialSurgery.com/blog or http://www.FacialSurgery.com/blog/index.php, it takes me back to the home page of FacialSurgery.com.

I've got a feeling I'm close here, but just can't figure out this last step.  Is it an Apache config thingie?  Remarkably, a few hours of reading documentation and googling around and posting questions on Wordpress forums has turned up nothing for me.

Thanks for any insight.
