Default Root Directory

Hi sorry to bother you once again!
In the book it tell me to make a test folderand make a index.html and save it in the test folder, which i did. Then it tells me to change the default directory for Apache. It says once you have done it type http://localhost/ and it should come up with the index.html file that i created.
This is what the conf file looks like now:

#
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
#
DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/test"

#
# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
#
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features.
#
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
</Directory>

#
# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.
#

#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/test">

Now when i try to start the server it brig up a apache page saying "Seeing this instead of the website you expected?"

can you help me please thank you!
