mod_rewrite not working with PHP files!

Last Modified: 2010-03-04
I created an .htaccess file to redirect people connecting to my site from a PDA to a pda version of the site. If they try to connect to http://www.domain.com/index.html, it will redirect them to http://www.domain.com/pda/index.html. It works well with all of the file types accept my php pages. When I try to connect to a php page, I get a 404 error. Can someone help me? Here is my code:

<Files 403.shtml>
order allow,deny
allow from all

ErrorDocument 404 /404.htm

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "Windows CE" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "NetFront" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "Palm OS" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "Blazer" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "Elaine" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "^WAP.*$" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "Plucker" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "AvantGo" [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/pda/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) /pda/$1 [L,R]
