    It's not a good idea, but you could do add the following meta tag in your 404 file
    HTML:
    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; URL=www.domain.com">
    or

    301 redirect in htaccess

    The 404 is there to inform the search engine the page doesn't exist anymore, by using a 301 all of the pages will appear the same to the search engine and you could get duplicate content issues. A nice 404 page with a link to the homepage would be better and pass pagerank too.

    Code:
    <html>
    <head><title>Page not Found!</title</title></head>
    <body>
    <h1>Sorry Page Not Found</h1>
    <p>Why not try our homepage <a href="index.html">here</a></p>
    </body>
    </html>
