This won't work as you would try to access the root of your webdav
directory in this way (i.e. D:/webdav). The webdav server can only serve
files, not directories, so you would have to access
http://localhost:8008/somefile.txt where somefile.txt is a file in
D:/webdav.

This only applies to acces using a browser. If you access the server
through a webdav-aware client (for example the Finder on Mac OS X, or
probably the Windows Explorer) it can serve the contents of the directory.
