I'm trying to restrict directory access on Windows/Apache via htaccess.  I have the following code on my test server in .htaccess to restrict access to the directory called "test" on Joomla 1.5.15 and I'm getting a 500 Internal Server error.   Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  Thank you.

<Directory "C:\Apache2.2\htdocs\test">
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
   Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxxx   # IP address of my test computer
