<system.diagnostics> causing a Configuration Error while setting Trace Listeners.

I am tring to use Trace Listener in asp.net 1.1 application as mentoned
here[1]. But i am getting the following error,
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file
required to service this request. Please review the specific error details
below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Exception in configuration section handler.

Source Error:

Line 99: </system.web>
Line 100:
Line 101: <system.diagnostics>
Line 102: <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="4">
Line 103: <listeners>

the error comes only at the first request, the subsequent request is not
causing this error, but the file also not created.

This is how my web.config looks now.
<trace autoflush="true" indentsize="4">
<add name="LogFileListener"
initializeData="c:\MyTrace.txt" />
<remove type="System.Diagnostics.DefaultTraceListener" />

I removed other elements for simplicity.
