I know httpd is running on sun, thats why I was looking for pointers.
Thanks for offering to help me debug.

My server is working now. The problem was that I installed the software
while reading the install.csh script. 

The /etc/httpd.conf created in this scipt is apparently incorrect.

I had to add "file:" to make it work:
    map   /     /welcome.html
    map   /*     /Public/*
    pass  /Public/*
    fail  *

Here is the new:
    map   /     /welcome.html
    map   /*     file:/Public/*
    pass  file:/Public/*
    fail  *

Thanks for the help.
