No, you don't need to wipe out the harddrive.  If the .htaccess file is
not being read, the problem is 99.999% AllowOverride.  Take another look
through your config.  Put it a specific directory section
<Directory /full/path/to/directory>
AllowOverride AuthConfig

Alternatively, forget the .htaccess file and just put the auth directives
directly in the directory section in httpd.conf.
