    Directory/folder question ...

    Ok, not sure how to explain this -- but here goes:

    I created a new folder called "palm" and I transfered over a bunch of files (.zip, .doc, etc) -- there are no .html files in this directory.

    I want people to be able to access this directory and see a list of all my files so they can download them. I know that most hosts/web servers allow this, but it's not working for me. It's giving me a "Forbidden" error message (saying I don't have permission to access /palm/ on this server). I did not password protect this directory either.

    Can someone help me figure out what's going on? And I'm not clear, I can try and explain it better.

    Thanks.
