If I recall, you're using Fedora Core 4, correct?  If so, chances are SELinux 
is installed and running (enabled by default).  You could either disable 
SELinux, or change the permissions -- the "context", in SELinux-speak -- on 
the user's HTML directories to allow the httpd daemon to actually view those 
directories.  Try:

[root@server ~]# chcon -R -t httpd_user_content_t /home/user/public_html

...replacing "user" with the user's name, of course.

I fussed with this one for a loooooong time until I finally found the 
documentation on Fedora's website.

Personally, I had so many issues with SELinux that I eventually just disabled 
it.  I figured it was overkill for my little home network anyway.

Hope that helps.
