How do I allow users to view the contents of a sub-directory of my document root? I get a permissions error if I attempt this now.

Jason Ross, Bryan W,
Assuming that your subdirectory has web content in it, ( particularly
an index.html, or whatever you specified as the default document )
Then all you should need to do is make sure that the sub-directory has
755 permissions, and that the documents in it are world readable.
If the directory does _not_ have web content in it, and you are looking
to have a directory listing show up, you need to add something like the
following in the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf ( or whatever directory you
installed the apache web server root to ):
Other configuration options
The key is the Options Indexes statement. That will allow apache to
give directory listings for the specified directory, which is disabled
