Generically, OS X through the GUI, does not allow you to save .htaccess files without extra configuration. Your best bet is to get into a Terminal, type "touch .htaccess" where you want the file, and from there, edit in your favorite GUI editor.

    Tried it and it worked great.
    The thing I had done before this was to use BBEdit from inside OS 9.2 partition. It enabled me to create the file, but I don't know if I did some kind of harm to the OS X environment.
    Your way is much better.
