Thanks for your response.
I tried your suggestion. But it was not working.
My development machine is Windows Xp with IIS 5.1
Since it not worked, I tried adding the same filename in the list of 'Default Document' in 'Documents' tab in IIS - again not worked. (I tried LoginPage.aspx & Sitefinity/LoginPage.aspx - both doesn't worked)
I have faced something strange, working different than your suggestion.!
Deleted my existing Virtual Directory and created a new Virtual Directory. The new virtual directory worked fine by loading my website's login itself!
To find how it is working, i done some work that I described below and learned something!
What I understood is that we need 'Default.aspx' in the 'Documents' tab of Virtual Directory in the 'Default Document' list. When 'Default.aspx' page is there is the list, my website's login page is loaded. When I removed from that list, it is not working. (no page is loading)
To make sure that is there is any effect with the LoginUrl in web.config, I gave a non-existing aspx file name there. Eventhough everything is working fine
<forms name=".ASPNET" loginUrl="~/LoginPage123.aspx" protection="All" timeout="1440" path="/" />
No effect for this setting - still works with the 'Default.aspx' (instead of LoginPage.aspx) page in IIS 'Default Document' settings
Please see the attachment screenshot for a clearer picture

To confirm, I manually renamed the 'Default.aspx' in the root folder to Default3.aspx -. Site it not working. When it is 'Default.aspx' it is working. Please see these attached screenshot files

06 - Physical Default.aspx Present - Working.JPG
From this it is clear for me that Default.aspx is doing some stuff
Kindly explain how it is working with Default.aspx page that is physically located in the root folder of your sitefinity project. Is that is designed by you, for this purpose !?
Looks strange for me. Could you please explain what is happening here. !?
To make you clear only, I have explained this much with much screenshots
