You need to set up the DirectoryIndex directive like this:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.php3 index.shtml index.cgi

These are the files that will be searched for when somebody requests a
directory. You can add as many as you want to the line all separated with
spaces. That's my list from a server I run.
