Angry Apache Directory Indexing 403 Error

Ok, I am having lots of trouble. I have a directory that I would like to share on the Internet. Right now we will pretend it is the Adobe folder in my home. I want to do a directory listing, bypassing the index.html alltogether. The content in the real directory is content sensitive so I am using Adobe in case the thing starts working all the sudden. Adobe is setup just like the real directory. First the conf file for that virtual host:

DocumentRoot "/home/t0ksik/Adobe"
Options Indexes
IndexOptions FancyIndexing FoldersFirst
ServerSignature Email

I have a file called .htaccess in the Adobe directory that reads like this:
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

The directory has the permissions 755 so apache should be able to read the file. If I try to goto I get this message:


You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I have already RTFM. I had it working before I switched from Mandrake to Red Hat so any help would be greatly appreciated.
