Depends on what's listed in your httpd.conf file. Look for index.html.en (assuming you are using english):
locate index.html.en
And it should bring up the location of that file. In that directory place your index.html file and it should replace the default apache page.

Cool

Your httpd.conf has a line in it called "DocumentRoot", it is a directory. Put your own index.html in this directory, and it will override the apache default page: "Congrats, it worked!!"

Behind the scene apache magic grabs index.html.en but you don't want your own webpages in the directory that contains this file, you want them in your DocumentRoot.

Don't forget to make the webpages world-readable...
