First try (will match 123234.jpg as well)
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^([0-9]+).jpg$ /index.php?id=$1

Then You can't use mod_rewrite in Your .htaccess
Ask administrator(possibly Yourself) to AllowOverride FileInfo for Your WebRoot
Refer http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewriteengine http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/core.html#allowoverride

> it still gives me 403 error

The option FollowSymlinks is not enabled, which causes this 403. You can enable it with

Options +Followsymlinks

If you recive a 500 internal server error, changes must be made in your httpd.conf.
