apache doesnt show what it should

Hello. I have Apache/1.3.31 (Unix) running. I made a VirtualHost directive in httpd.conf i wrote inside it my document root directive and when i want to test everything is browseable in the directoryroot but i when i want to browse a directory in my directoryroot directory i cant, how is it fixed?
By the way here is log with ownerships and permissions, it is from my documentroot directory:

drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2005-02-20 19:45 ./
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 2005-02-15 00:12 ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 root users 4194 2005-02-19 23:04 about.htm
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2005-02-08 14:34 eng/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root users 775490 2005-02-07 15:47 hos.jpg
-rw-r--r-- 1 root users 1550 2005-02-19 22:47 index.html
drwxr-xr-x 6 root users 4096 2005-02-20 21:43 pictures/

and i want to browse pictures and i get :"You are not authorized to view this page".

You have to allow indexes (Options +Indexes) for that to work, otherwise you get the 403 Forbidden.

In other words, apache is doing exactly what it should, you haven't configured it correctly
