Thanks to all those who responded.

The correct answer was:

	D: Call your webhosting company and ask them to fix it

:-)  but thanks to the folks who pointed me to the info here, I was able
to say:

"Hi, we just added PHP support for our site but it appears the Default
Document settings in the MMC doesn't list index.php as one of the
preferred filenames.  Could you fix that?"

rather than

"Um... yeah, my PHP stuff ain't working right"

It was a much shorter, and much more productive, conversation, and both
the tech and I were able to enjoy it much more.

Thanks again Evolters!
