Basically, you shouldn't. If the web site administrator has set up index.html files or otherwise prevented you from generating a directory listing, it generally means that there's stuff in that directory which you aren't meant to access. It's impolite (at best) to try and get round that, although the wise admin will take stronger meansures to ensure that even if you can guess filenames, you still can't download anything you shouldn't.
