IIS 7.0 and default document

I have installed IIS 7.0 and it set up a default web site.  I can see that site from a client and a welcome page comes up with the IIS items on them (blue).  I want to set my default page and there is a default document setting under the IIS selections.  When I open that I need to move my page index.html to the top.  There are arrows on the side that allow this but I get a message that says 'the list order will be changed. If you continue, changes made to this feature at a parent level will no longer be inherited at this level" Do you want to continue.

So I think I am in the wrong place even though it looks right and I can't find anywhere else to change this.

If you are just wanting to change the default document for that one site, and you clicked on the site name, then under IIS on the right you double-clicked on Default Document, then you are in the right place.

However, if you want to change it globally, then here is the process: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/203/default-documents

So the parent comment applies to more than one web site making that the default web page for all sites I add?  This helps a lot. Thank you.
