By default your webfiles would be in /var/www/html . If you create index.html in /var/www/html you should see that page pop up instead of the initial test page assuming your httpd.conf file is setup correctly.

/var/www/html is the default.

A lot of people (my self included) change DocumentRoot in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to a location on "/home" Usually if your system is partitioned you will have more free space on home to play with.

Excellent "Crashed_Again". Thanks a Million. Now why is that particular file the default? Where is that specified and how can I change it.

Just create index.html in /var/www/html

If you don't want to give it the name index.html make sure the filename is in
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

I think that page is just there to let you know that Apache is working when you first install it. You shouldn't have to edit it at all. If you put an index.html file in /var/www/html then go to http://your.ip.address.here you will see your index.html page.
