But if I change it to test.html, it gives the familiar HTTP 404 File Not Found error. What the heck is going on???

A couple of things to check.
item 1) In IIS Manager go to the "Default" site look at the "default" document settings.
In the list you should find "default.asp","default.htm","index.asp","index.htm","localasp.asp".
The order and type of document starts with this list.
The second order of delivery is via mapping of handlers for .asp,.htm,.html,.*"
To test if the server is really working put into the directory "test" a "index.htm".
In IIS Manager set the permissions for "IUSR" and "IUSR_MACHINE to read,execute.
Go to IIS Manager and place "index.htm" in the top of "Default" documents.
Restart the server to reflect the changes.

Some food for thought.
Move all the files in the directory in question to a new location on the hard disk.
Move the server alias to ths physical location.
The thing to consider is that you maybe fighting bad sectors or indexes in the disk structure.
It has been known to happen.

The question is under this case is the C$ the shared network or server name as a directory same as C:\.
Try this C$_C or just C_C as the virtual directory.
If you can get to a command prompt and use net view on the machine and drives.

When I open up IE and goto C2/test.html, it works. But with C/test.html, I get the 404 error.
So you're saying the request for C/test.html shows a 404.0 response in the IIS log? C/test.html and C2/test.html are the same physical file?
