    Blog question in subdirectory

    Hi, to all WordPress (WP) users here. Can someone point out the best way to direct all domain/site requests to WP in a subdirectory?
    I have a domain that is best used as an ezine/news site. Other uses not suitable. However I want to add a blog to it with WP like this: http://mydomain/blog/
    As right now I'm short of money and still trying to figure out how to start an ezine, I decided to focus on developing the blog part of my (yet to be) ezine for the time being....
    Since I dont want to upset the URLS later in the Search Engines...I want to make the home or index page of my site to point to my blog as in http://mydomain/blog/ and direct all visitors to the blog, and focus on my blog writing only.

    I've heard htaccess can be used, as in using the command "DirectoryIndex"....

    However I'm not sure if that method will work right with the WP permalinks and its structure.
    Does anyone know whats the best thing to do, as I believe using DirectoryIndex in htaccess works best for .html pages and not sure if it will work for WP since WP permalinks are usually like this: http://rootdomain/2006/12/6/post-title
    and dont show any normal old fashion page.html structure.

    How do I make http://mydomain/blog as the default index page? I have asked this in Wordpress forum, but I'm very sure no one will answer...since the WP forum is famous for this.

    Hope someone here knows the answer, as this not very difficult question

    LoL, I see now WP can have pageXYZ.html...
    Actually I'm just starting to learn WP for past 1 month. Before I was learning Joomla & Drupal...very heavy stuff for newbie to absorb

    Now I think WP is very good for blogging and can also be CMS, but I think its better to use a proper CMS to make an ezine site....and since that is still long time away, I want to start my blog ASAP

    So thats why I want to install WP in a subdir like http://mydomain.com/blog/ and set it as the homepage so that http://mydomain.com will always go to -->http://mydomain.com/blog/

    Then when I actually can start an ezine proper, I just install a CMS inside the root and change back the index or homepage as http://mydomain.com
    The /blog folder will still be there and all the urls is preserved ma...and I still can carry on blogging...

    Dont know how to do this the right way lar.
    Do you or anyone know? I think its not so hard
