I need help setting up mod_rewrite rules

I have the following file structure:

http://www.domain.com/index.php
http://www.domain.com/schools.php
http://www.domain.com/business.php
http://www.domain.com/contact.php

i would like it to appear as:

http://www.domain.com/
http://www.domain.com/schools/
http://www.domain.com/business/
http://www.domain.com/contact/

so thats it's all nice and clean, but i am having trouble figuring out the re_write rules :(

Did you already modify your html source code so that you've a link like 'a href="/schools/"''? Because mod_rewrite cannot modify the html source code but only rewrite or redirect incoming requests.

You have two options in order to direct requests like /schools/ to its corresponding php file:
Option one w/o mod_rewrite
 
DirectoryIndex index.php
Options +MultiViews
 
Option two:
DirectoryIndex index.php
RewriteEngine on
# if you don't call existing folders like /existent/, remove the condition
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)/?$ /$1.php [L]
