You need to tell Apache to allow changes to the configs via the .htaccess file.

# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"
     AllowOverride All

On my personal boxes, I tell Apache to accept all changes - since I'm the 
only Admin. You might want to open it all the way if there are others 
sharing your box.
