I just installed the sample data ( and then installed Magento after that. The homepage for Madison Island loads great (localhost/magento/index.php/) but any of the links are broken. For example, if I click "women", I get a 404 error for this page: localhost/magento/women.html. I tried searching the sample data "media" folder and I can't find that HTML page or any images.

If someone could please let me know what I'm doing wrong, I'd appreciate!

Thanks, Josh

Try setting the Use Web Server Rewrites value in Magento to No.
