Installing wordpress in subdirectory

I'm trying to install wordpress in a subdir (called journal), in the root dir I have another blog type called "dolphin". But when I install wordpress and edit the htaccessm all of dolphin's links get routed to wordpress. I'm trying to avoid that.

Attached is htaccess I'm using for wordpress.
#BEGIN Wordpress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#RewriteEngine On
#RewriteBase /journal/
#RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
#RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
#RewriteRule ^journal/(.*?) /journal/index.php [L]
#END Wordpress

where is this .htaccess-file?   in the root directory or in the subfolder "journal/"?

If you place this file in the subfolder "journal", the webserver will only respect it for contents in the subfolder

the .htaccess is in the root dir.

try moving it to the subfolder  (or adding a new .htaccess in the subfolder with the wordpress stuff, if you have something relevant for dolphin in the main .htaccess file)
