XF 2.2 Almost there - but redirects - need help


I managed to do the import from Bulletin 4.2.5 and all seems to be working as intended. But, when I followed the directions for the Vbulletin in the manual. I have my Xenforo installed in a different directory from VB so I used the section in the manual "XenForo and Bulletin at different URLs. These are the steps I did:

1) 1 I added the XenForo redirects for vBulletin add-on
2) Went immediately to Options >> vBulletin Import
3) I selected the import log table I created during the import
4) I clicked Save
5) I navigated to src/addons/XF301VB/SourceLocation and downloaded index.php and htaccess.txt.
6) I copied those two files to the directory with my VB installed and renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess
7) I edited the index.php and replace $dir with the path to my XenForo install:
8) But when I test it by going to any link in Google for example, it just goes straight to my VB install. It is not redirecting.

I did also try editing the .htaccesss file where it says "If you are having problems..."

# If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
# line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
# of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
RewriteBase /home/tbcf/public_html/community

I am sitting here dying to go live but am stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
