Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And if I then put some directives in a .htaccess file in a sub directory, the following show up in my log file:
- RewriteEngine not allowed here
- order not allowed here
Of course, depending on which directive I put it.
It seems that the only thing I'm allowed to do in .htaccess is authentication.
I've been searching high and low for a solution to this problem and I've tried a million things. I'm sure it's just a small thing I've missed but I can't find it!
I'm toying with the idea that perhaps Suse is playing tricks on me because it's got so many extra config files all over the place and somewhere something is overriding my settings. I've tried commenting out stuff in some of the config files, to no avail.
Before you ask, I do rememeber to restart Apache every time I change http.conf ("httpd restart"). Also, if I put garbage in my http.conf and restart, Apache does complain which suggests that the file _is_ read.
