Turn ON "URL rewrite" in Apache2 (debian etch)

Hi All:

I've installed apache2 + php5 + mysql + gallery2 in my system.

The gallery2 found that the "URL rewrite" didn't work.
(there is test in the gallery2)

However, I found that the module "rewrite" is loaded".

What should I do to turn ON the "URL rewrite" in apache2?

Sorry. I missed one thing.

When I use phpinfo() to display my setup.
I found that the "Virtual Directory Support" is disable.
Is it important? or I need to turn it ON? If YES, how to enable this?

Mod_Rewrite is an apache module, therefore it should be enabled in your apache .conf file.
As far as I know Debian-like distros, you should create file in /etc/apache/mods-enabled/ with the name like "rewrite.load" containing a line "LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache/modules/".
