I've done authentication before, so I'm a little puzzled why I can't get it to work now. All I'm trying to do is get a very basic user-authentication on a particular directory.
Here's my .htaccess file:

(I tried giving the .htpasswd an absolute dir too, that didn't work).
The htpasswd program worked fine for adding new users, and it nicely created a .htpasswd file with the user's password. But after all this, when I try to access the dir from my browser, I don't get the pop-up window asking for username & password. Why....?!! I'm stumped. Is there something funny going on on my server, maybe?
