Dspam Authentication

I have Dspam on a RH9 box over postfix

my .htaccess file has -
AuthName "Dspam"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/dspam
Require valid-user

I have made users entries in

/var/www/cgi-bin/cgi/dspam file with htaccess
which when opened shows user & encrypted password

My query here is

accessing my RH9 box from some other machine with
gives a popup asking user & pass but user input does no authentication

Now if i make a new file named 'users' instead of 'dspam' as above thru htpasswd the same way and changing reference in my .htaccess accordingly

it does let me in but shows text based stats. not the graphical one

where i am doing wrong ?

Please help
