Just /  -> /foo or also /*** to /foo/**** ?

In the first case you can use

RewriteRule /$ /foo [L]

In the second case:

RewriteRule /(.*) /foo/$1

-r-

dosn't work (and just want first case)

## MOD_REWRITE STUFF
RewriteEngine On

# Redirect home
RewriteRule /$ /home [L]

RewriteRule ^$ /foo

Do you need a redirect for the index file too? Does the rewrite need to send a redirect to the browser, or happen silently?

If you want to let the world know that this is a permanent arrangement (i.e. not temporary, and links should now point to the new URL) then the 301 redirect status is the one for you:

RewriteRule ^$ /foo [R=301]

That should do the trick.
