apache 1.3 config question; default document?

I am trying to setup a default doc with apache 1.3 , the effect I want is if a user browses to my [website], for example , I can tell apache to look for the default doc, for example index.jsp, therefore avoiding typing [website]/index.jsp.

p.s. I have found nowhere in the httpd.conf file for this setting

Is this possible? Any help is appreciated.

Look for the line that says:


And add it there, should look something like this:

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.cgi index.shtml index.jsp
