"Options -Indexes" is not required to use mod_rewrite.
That simply tells apache not to do directory listings.
Which helps provide a little more security.
As for the template I am currently using...
I built it for my site, so all the modifications I made to it and index.php and the various mods work great on my site.... but if they were used on any other site they won't work. :-(
If I ever make a template again, I will build it so I won't be tethered to my site only.

the cleanest method is to locate the $showprefix definition, and change that to 'photo/' or whatever.
depending on how you've coded your templates, they may need to be modified as well; adding a BASE HREF tag can help resolve relative locations..
unmake is right on.
It's simply a matter of searching your index.php and the various mod php files that you use and setting the path accordingly.
