I've been getting this error pretty much immediately after installing and trying to run apache through the control panel (I did do a forum search, but all older threads discussing this problem are about SuSe 9.3, I am using 10.0).
The error log file is filled with errors like:

[Mon Apr 10 22:03:07 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Directory index forbidden by rule: /srv/www/htdocs/

[Mon Apr 10 22:03:11 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /srv/www/htdocs/favicon.ico
As far as i can check, all those files/folder do exist.
I've read it's most likely an error in the httpd.conf, but I have no idea what it should look like, or what could be wrong with it.
