first of all thanks for this piece of software wich will be famous one time :-)

Unfortunately i had a problem with the installation as i could not use silverstripe because of a mod_rewrite error (Silverstripe reported that i havent got mod_rewrite activated wich was not true).

The only problem was the rewrite rule in the .htacces itself.
I replaced this line:

RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

with this line:

RewriteRule .* /sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

and it worked like a charm.

Just to notice.

Were you dealing in a subdirectory? It'd be great to learn why this was needed for you and not everyone else... .htaccess has definitely been a fragile part of the system...
