How can I create direct URL access to a folder /file in a web?

How can I create direct URL access to a folder /file in a web?

I am making a web site that I would like it to be possible to do the following example
   1. be psble to go directly to  www.community.org and open the initial page of community.org---this is no problem.

   2.  and be able to go directly to Ballet by typing         www.community.org/ballet ---with nothing after it-- that is in the web as a ballet folder with an index file so it is www.community.org/ballet/index.
Problem exists that I can't get the entry ballet page to come up.  hope this isn't confusing,

   3. Do I have to register each part so it can be found?  that doesn't sound right.  I will have a lot of these--should they all be just files w/ supporting material in a ballet folder with a ballet file separate to be found by entering www.community.org/ballet

All this is in fp 2000

hope you can help.

I am getting ready to launch soon. thanks

RE: How can I create direct URL access to a folder /file in a web?

On the web (IIS) server, you'll have to go in and add the name of your subweb home page to Internet Service Manager (or Management Console). Right click on the folder - in this case Ballet, choose PROPERTIES, then the DOCUMENTS tab, and add the name of the Ballet home page. (It sounds like the name here is index.htm.)  Default.htm should already be in there.  That should do the trick!
