currently i have this
   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^public.mydomain.com$ [NC]
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mydomain.com/servlet/publicPageServlet?page=$1 [R=301,L]

so when i do
it rewrites it to

so this kind of works.
there is a couple of things i would like to change if possible.

currently the user see's the new URL. Is there a way to not show the New URL ?
secondly is there a way to strip the / before kam. I can do it in the servlet but was wondering if there is a way to do it before.
last, if they just put in
i redirect I goto http://www.mydomain.com/

Thanks for the help
