I've got mod_proxy and mod_rewrite installed.  I used pretty much the
exact syntax as the above.. In fact, it IS the same syntax ;)  It's
still changing the url for me though, like it's doing a simple forward
instead of a proxy.

That's the big part I'm missing, the ability to keep the URL in the
browser the same.
