Just guessing here based upon a few web page hits:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteBase %{PATH_INFO}
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
  RewriteRule %{PATH_INFO}/index.php [L]

Might get you into the right direction, or lead you off a cliff. ;-)

> RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
> RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
> </IfModule>
