I have cvs'd to 1.5-alpha-6 and I'm trying to use permalinks. wp has created the .htaccess with my desired structure:
but if I take the /index.php out the mod_rewrite doesn't work and I get things like:
http://site.com/archives/2004/.. doesn't exist
and in the apache error logs it's looking for /usr/local/www/wordpress//archives/2004/..
