Need .htaccess help, sub-domain and DNS forwarding

    In a continuation of helping my friend with her website (hosting expired), I set up a subdomain through my chickshare.com account with GoDaddy. They created a directory called UniqueDesigns (makes sense to me, could it be a case sensitivity issue? Nope, tried that just now, renamed to uniquedesigns with no change/) Through register.com (her registration service), I set DNS forwarding to this subdomain, uniquedesigns.chickshare.com. It seems to have taken effect now, but I get a 403 Forbidden error for her URL: http://www.uniquedesigns-scenes.com/ .

    Here is my .htaccess, I modified it to get my wiki to be under /wiki, but .htaccess really makes my head hurt:
    Code:
    # -FrontPage-
    #<Files ~ (wiki|redirect)>
    #        ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    #</Files>
    
    
    DirectoryIndex w/index.php 
    
    #IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
    
    RewriteEngine On
    #Options FollowSymLinks
    
    ###
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(stylesheets|images|skins)/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(redirect|texvc|index).php
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(40(1|3|4)|500).shtml
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/favicon.ico
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/robots.txt
    ###
    
    #ReWriteRule ^wiki/(.*) w/index.php?title=$1 [T=application/x-httpd-php-source]
    ReWriteRule ^wiki/(.*) w/index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
    
    <Directory UniqueDesigns>
    #ServerName 
    #DirectoryIndex UniqueDesigns/index.html
    #Options FollSymLinks+ Indexes+
    #ReWriteRule ^UniqueDesigns/(.*) uniquedesigns-scenes/(.*) [L,QSA]
    </Directory>
    
    #RewriteRule ^apple$ banana
    #RewriteRule ^wiki/(.*) w/index.php?title=$1 
    #RewriteRule ^$ /wiki/Main_Page [R] 
    #RewriteRule ^wiki/*$ ^index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA] 
    
    ###
    
    I've thought to double-check the DNS forwarding on register.com, but I can't get there from work (register.com blocked completely by our IS department). The permissions on uniquedesigns are drwx---r-x (705?) I can change these too, though it looks ok.

    it must be his day off. I did check and also recieved a 403 error.
    I'm far from being an expert on this but try changing the permissions just to see if it does work at all, 750, 751?
