Could you try to go to http://yourserver/CDash/install.php? CDash 
automatically redirects to the install page, maybe something is going on 
in that case.

Also, could your try to get an image in the image directory to see if 
you can access it: http://yourserver/CDash/images/Alert.gif

Finally, do you have any redirect in your apache configuration?
