I failed to install SS on my Apache 2.2.9 server because I get an Error 500 everytime I try to access http://localhost/silverstripe

Here is the record in Apache error.log:

[Tue Jul 22 06:07:23 2008] [alert] [client] C:/xampp/htdocs/silverstripe/.htaccess: Expected </html><head><title> but saw </title></head>

Looks like Apache finds some kind of syntax error in .htaccess

Hope you can help

Xampp 1.6.7 (Apache HTTPD 2.2.9 + MySQL 5.0.51b + PHP 5.2.6)
