check out your httpd.conf or access.conf and look for a <Directory>
block of stuff. Depending on where you want the directory index add the
keyword Indexes to the Options line. Like so:

<Directory /home/*/public_html>
   AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
   Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
   etc etc etc
