Apache acting weird with index pages

I almost have a LAMP server set up the way I want it, the only real issue right now is this small oddity.

The web root is /var/www/html with symlinks to /home/weasel/public_html and so on for each of my users.

When a user has an index.html (defined by the directive DocumentIndex in httpd2.conf), and goes to the server address so...

http://$serverIP/weasel <--- doesn't work, browser says its looking up a page at and doesn't display anything (from another computer on the network)


http://$SERVERIP/weasel/ <-------- note the trailing slash, does work correctly.

I cannot seem to identify any reason why this wouldn't be working. I tried making a dummy directory that wasn't symlinked into the webroot and that didn't work either.

I am running Mandrake 9.2 with the default Apache.

(Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/2.0.47) <----actual version

If anybody has any ideas on why this doesn't work...please let me know,
thank you all,

This was the main reason I don't use apache 2.0....that and it's not recommended for use with PHP scripting yet. Downgrade to apache 1.3.x and your problems will be solved...though, I'm sure there is an easy fix, but I'm not able to help you.
