That means the AllowOverride directive in httpd.conf is not set 
correctly.  You need at least "AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit"

the syntax should be Alias fakename realname

Alias takes URL-paths, not file-paths, so it should be more like
Alias /_vti_inf.html /usr/local/httpd/html/_vti_inf.html

<files> only takes filenames, not full paths.  You can try
<files _vti_rpc>, or <files _vti_bin>, but I'm not sure if it will work 
or not.  You may need to create the _vti_bin directory and then use
<files shtml.exe>
