Joomla - Mod_rewrite - Apache- New Virtual Private Server. Doesnt work?

Hi,
I have just transferred a Joomla site from a shared host to a new virtual private server.
The only thing I cant get working is the Search Engine Friendly links which are done using the apache modrewrite function in the .hataccess.

Im just getting 404 errors for all the pages except the homepage.

Ive checked the htaccess and it seems ok (code below).
Ive also check that modrewrite is present in php.info and it seems to be.

I dont know what else to check. Any ideas?

Regards
Mitch

# beginning of line), reload your site in your browser and test your sef url's.  If they work,
# it has been set by your server administrator and you do not need it set here.
#
# Only use one of the two SEF sections that follow.  Lines that can be uncommented
# (and thus used) have only one #.  Lines with two #'s should not be uncommented
# In the section that you don't use, all lines should start with #
#
# For Standard SEF, use the standard SEF section.  You can comment out
# all of the RewriteCond lines and reduce your server's load if you
# don't have directories in your root named 'component' or 'content'
#
# If you are using a 3rd Party SEF or the Core SEF solution
# uncomment all of the lines in the '3rd Party or Core SEF' section

Have you checked if AllowOverride for your specific <Directory /path/to/document_root>  section is set to at least FileInfo in your httpd.conf?
