 	First off, the contents of your .htaccess file should be something 
like this:

<Limit GET>
   order deny,allow
   deny from all
</Limit>

 	Secondly, did you configure the "AllowOverride" directive in your 
httpd.conf Directory sections?  If not, that would explain why .htaccess 
is not doing the trick.

 	Check the contents of those two files and you'll likely find the 
answer on why what you're doing isn't working.
