If you look closely at the mod_rewrite setups for Apache 2.0 (and
presumably also for 1.3) you will mostly likely see the rewrite
directive followed by [L,P].  The L means do the rewrite and stop
processing (L = last), the P means proxy the result rather than redirect
to it.  It's mod_rewrite's proxying that was breaking under the FC4
selinux targeted policy's default settings (I don't think FC3's version
of selinux has the same effect).  If you're using Fedora Core 4, you can
change the settings with the security level configuration applet.
