Good catch, Rovastar. Default.html was a typo on my part, I meant to type default.htm.
Any way, the www logs will show the sub status code if you have it enabled for logging. Using this reference, you may be able to find out more information as to why a 404 is being generated based on that.
That will enable you to better troubleshoot why default.htm is not working in IIS 6 when you have it listed as a default doc because HTML pages appear to be loading properly on your site.
