.htaccess and ExpressionEngine

I’m working on a project at home and have created this template directory structure (I have the site.group set to default):
expressionengine    
    templates    
        default_site    
            cursos.group    
                index.html    
            programas.group    
                index.html    
            testimonales.group    
                index.html    
            site.group    
                index.html  

Open in new window

But, EE will not serve the index in any group except site.group.  (I am running on Wampserver 2.2 localhost port 8040)
So my urls:
http://localhost:8040/cursos 
http://localhost:8040/programas
http://localhost:8040/testimonales

Open in new window

all return a 404. I CAN however, use these urls:
http://localhost:8040/index.php/cursos 
http://localhost:8040/index.php/programas
http://localhost:8040/index.php/testimonales

Open in new window

The .htaccess I have looks like this (from the EE manual):
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        # Removes index.php from ExpressionEngine URLs
        RewriteCond $1 !\.(gif|jpe?g|png)$ [NC]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

Open in new window

I have even tried this .htaccess (essentially copying to one from Rackspace with some changes):
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond $1 ^(cursos|programas|testimonales) [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !^(images|js|crmi_cms|css|themes|favicon\.ico|robots\.txt|files|index\.php) [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(gif|jpe?g|png)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Open in new window

I also have the “Admin->General Configuration->Name of your site’s index page” set to blank.

Any ideas

This finally worked. I double checked that mod_rewrite was installed, too.

# Removes index.php from ExpressionEngine URLs
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond $1 !\.(gif|jpe?g|png)$ [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !^(admin|images|system|themes|index\.php|admin\.php) [NC]
RewriteCond $1 ^(cursos|programas|testimonales|salondelafama|enhonor|registro|resources|calendario|TNA) [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
