The 500 error is probably due to the directory not being setup to allow 
overrides in .htaccess (see the AllowOverride directive). Whether or not 
it is affecting your rewrite rules depends on whether your files or 
directories are symlinks. Check the apache error log to see what what 
page the browser is attempting to pull.
