    I have apache 2.x.x installed. I enabled the .mod_rewrite module, and added

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEgine On
    </IfModule>

    into my configuration file. I go to the root directory of my wordpress and created .htaccess and chmod 666 the file. I go to the administration console and create the permalink but they are not working. I always keep getting a file not found error.

    I restarted apache, I have no idea what else I coudl do. Someone please help. Thanks.

    chmod .htaccess 777 so it can write to it. Then chmod 644 when your done writing to it for security.

    or use rboren's simplified rewrites, and never have to change them again ;) ( lost the link, google knows where it is )

    also, you need to add/change AllowOverride All in the apache config, under <directory />, for rewrites to work.

    That fixed it. Thanks a lot.
