[Dshield] Help Request

Hi all,
I never had to use this specific method before, but due to circumstances 
beyond my control
and I really don't wish to explain the whole thing... it would takes 
pages, I need to add ip
blocking to my .htaccess file. I think I had the format correct, but 
when I try it , I get a
500 internal server error.
Here's an example....

<Files 403.shtml>
order allow,deny
allow from all

deny from
deny from
deny from
deny from
deny from
deny from
deny from
deny from
Deny from
Deny from

The file is actually over 30k. I'm sure folks here will probably notice 
that they are all
from the Asian area. The focus is to block the pirate sites from 
accessing information
on my server. I'm not sure , but would the line "allow from all" be the 
problem? I've
searched google in hopes that there would be an example out there 
showing the
ip blocking method, but I couldn't find one. My mailserver had ip 
blocking, but that
was within the software itself, so naturally, it's methods don't work in 
this area.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
For those who may be wondering, our ecommerce partner fraud measures 
didn't work
on a credit card purchase of one of our products. I found it three days 
later floating around pirate
sites in Asia and newsgroups. Now the sites have links to my server (for 
images and html
pages) posted on their sites which keeps using bandwidth. That's 
basically the short version :-)

Thanks in advance
