cgi > htm Mod Rewrite

I been reading all sorts of articles and tried different mod rewrites but have not found 1 yet that works.

here is an example of my code:


rewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^morelinks/(.*).htm /morelinks.cgi?category=$1 [T=application/x-httpd-cgi]

what i am trying to accomplish is

to make
http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/morelinks.cgi?category=1

into

http://www.domain.com/morelinks/1.htm


my server is all up todate with all the latest apache, php, cgi etc. Mod Rewrite is enabled.

the script itself runs directly from cgi-bin/

I had to ssi the
http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi

to the http://www.domain.com/index.htm

so the site could appear.

i added the .htaccess file to the cgi-bin folder, tried it outside of the cgi-bin, and inside the html folder, but nothing seems to make it change.

my path structure is like so:
/my/server/path/ptrsearch.com/html
/my/server/path/ptrsearch.com/cgi-bin

all cgi has to be within cgi-bin folder
all html has to be within the html folder

Am i missing something??

any help or pointing me in the right direction would be greatful

Thanks
