Problems getting apache to serve user web page

I'm new to apache and having trouble setting up directories for a user to edit web pages in FC4.

One approach was to create a link to a particular directory. In /var/www , did:
mv html html.old
ln -s /home/joe/public_html html
The link file, /home/joe/public_html, and index.html all have permission 755.
When I do this, I can't restart httpd.

The second approach is to use ~joe
In httpd.conf, I commented out
UserDir disable
and un-commented out
UserDir public_html
Gave /home/joe permission 711, and /home/joe/public_html and index.html permission 755.
I get the 403 error, "You don't have permission to access /~joe/ on this server."

Could anyone help me out with either of these approaches?
