Post Virtual Hosts Error 403

Im totally new to setting up apache like this so please forgive any "obvious" questions or errors!

I downloaded and installed apache2 and mysql using XAMPP on a windows XP Pro machine (yes, i hear all the groans out there!!!) for a php development enviroment. I then edited my windows hosts file and added

I then open the httpd-vhosts file, uncommented the NameVirtualHost *.80 line and added the following as a virtual host,

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "C:/websites/"

Then restared apache, however now whenever i try or http://localhost i get the 403 error. What am i doing wrong/omitting?

Any help would be met with masses of gratitude!

I had the same problem, but solved it like this:
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all             ## Changed this from "Deny from all" ##
    Satisfy all

Hope it helped you!
