Apache - change document root?

I changed the document root in /etc/apache/httpd.conf to point to a directory in a seperate harddrive and started apache. Even though there are files in that directory, I get a 404 error. So, is there anything special I must do to make it point to my new document root (/mnt/fat32data/server/www)?

The basic stuff...

I assume you've checked all the basic file permissions?
Have you restarted httpd so that it can re-read the .conf file?
