No, you've done everything right, except for the request. GeoServer
started as just a web feature server, which returns the map data as gml,
geographic xml. With an appropriate client you can turn this data into
maps. GeoServer has also recently added an integrated Web Map Server,
which will display maps in the web browser as images. To see the bc_roads
you'll need a request like:
There is more information available at:
http://geoserver.sourceforge.net/documentation/user/wms.htm (also in your
doc directory). You can request different formats, such as svg or jpeg
with the format parameter. And you can define different styles. For
example try styles=blue instead of styles=normal. These styles are
defined according to the OpenGIS consortium's SLD specification, so you
can create your own and add them to the styles directory if you want the
visualization to look different.
Hope this helps,
