So I have a domain server with the domain, and I have an installation of wordpress running at I set up a CNAME entry so points to, but now I want to be able to use mod_rewrite to turn on clean urls, and I'm having some problems. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

This is what was already in the .htaccess file:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$
RewriteRule ^blogs/?(.*)$ "http\:\/\/mainecampus\.kudzugazette\.com\/wordpress\/$1" [R=302,L]
Here's what WordPress wants me to put in the .htaccess file:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Is there a way I can merge the two?
