How to start my application with index.html.erb

I have removed "index.html" from the "public" folder, and would like to
be able to view the index of my index.html.erb of the "projects" views?

How can I do that in Rails3.0.0.rc?

Thanks.

It worked when I created a new home controller with an index action, and
then, in routes.rb, did the following:

root :to => "home#index"

But, the issue in my other thread still exists:
