    I tried the mod rewrite thing and it works with 'index.php/path/to/' but if I try to put the htaccess stuff it prints in the box below, into my htaccess file . . i get blocked from the site . . .says I don't have permission. I have to go in through the shell and delete the .htaccess stuff to get back in.
    Where/what am I doing wrong?

    You might want to ensure that you REWRITE access is enabled in your web server. You can inquire with your web host to figure it out.

    Is there a way to tell? I do have a lot of freedom on it.

    So if under Loaded Modules "mod_rewrite" is listed, that means I have it?

    Ok, so now why don't the rules from the box pasted into .htaccess work? Why does it kick me (and everyone else I assume) out of my site?

    Check your error log for details.
    I assume you're getting '403 Forbidden'. Could be file permissions. Here are some other ideas:
