Another thing to consider is using some other page for your "main  
page." The page "MediaWiki:Mainpage" contains the name of the page  
you want to be your home page. Thus http://www.EcoReality.org takes  
you to the page "Welcome to EcoReality!"

Yet another technique: put a #REDIRECT on your "Main Page" to make it  
go wherever you want. It will make a little "(Redirected from Main  
Page)" note, but otherwise does what you want. Unlike the  
MediaWiki:Mainpage hack, this one does not require admin privs --  
unless the admin has locked Main Page.
