Will this work at all?

New to mod_rewrite? This is a good place to start.

Will this work at all?

Debug 1
Reload 1
RewriteRule ^/([A-Za-z0-9-%20]+)$ /search.aspx?keyword=$1

Basically, as you can tell, what i'm trying to achieve here is such that if someone keys in www.xyz.com/flowers, whatever is the keyword trailing the / after the URL, is used directly as the querystring for the search... but what if flowers is a directory on my server? apparently, it doesn't goto the directory, it simply thinks it's a querystring and tries to search for it. I'm trying to put a condition as such that it should first check if it's a directory, if not, it's a querystring.

Please advise at your earliest convenience.

Thank you
