Question (Debian)DirectoryIndex not allowed here

Recently I've changed Red Hat Linux 7.3 into Debian 3.0.
and almost everying is new to me.

I use 'aptitude' to install every package,
and what I've done is to get apache2,php4,mysql installed.

but I found that every directory that contains .htaccess file will show
(500)Internal Server Error

and this is the log:

[Sat Feb 05 01:29:57 2005] [alert] [client **.**.**.**] /home/www/public_html/
hdsmysqladmin/.htaccess: Options not allowed here

hdsmysqladmin is a link to phpmyadmin directory rather than the default name.

where should I modify in apache2.conf or else?

and this is my .htaccess file in /home/www/public_html/
DirectoryIndex index.php
Options +FollowSymLinks

Order allow,deny
Allow from all

In your httpd.conf you need to allow the use of .htaccess files and specify what they can contain
