Power Set up apache to point at my homepage

I have just install apache 1.3.22 on my solaris 2.6 with virtualhost which is working fine but I want to configure my httpd.conf file so that when I type in my url on an internet browsers it goes straight to my home page.
eg www.mydomain.com should display my home page

at the monent when I type in www.mydomain.com it displays a blank page but when I type in www.mydomain.com/homepage it displays my home page.

I want www.mydomain.com to diplay my home page without type in /homepage.

Can you help?

Thanks in Advance

You need to add /homepage to the document root entry in your httpd.conf file

Thanks but I have already added my homepage to my
DocumnetRoot in httpd.conf file but this did not solve the problem.

my DocumentRoot is /www/files/big/myhomepage.html


when my DocumentRoot was set to /www/files/big it
displays an index of all file within the big directory but I just want my url to display my
homepage.

Try renaming it to index.html (or index.htm). I would have thought the document root would have worked.
