Apache 2 vhost problem

I have apache 2.2 installed on slackware 10.

What the problem is, is that I get an error 403 "Permission Denied" when trying to access anything other than files in and under /home/main . is my httpd.conf is a copy of the 'httpd.conf' file is a copy of the 'httpd-vhosts.conf' file.

See anything wrong there?

Here is a "ls -l" of whats in the /home dir. Directories are chmod 755 and files are 644.
root@ack:/home# ls -l
total 44
drwxr-xr-x  2 flab          flab           4096 2006-04-23 14:44 flab/

-rw-r--r--  1 main main     1954 2006-05-03 00:51 vhost-directive.txt

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Alright, after chatting with a few kind folks in #apache on I got it working.
It was the <Directory /> directive.
There needed to be a directive for documentroot, so that apache will serve pages from it.
