The current site   www.example.com            is running in the root directory      say         root/

I have a drupal site in the folder called  "drupal"   so it is here    root/drupal/

how do I tweak the .htaccess file so when people go to example.com, or example.com/about-us

it takes them to the drupal site?

This will redirect all requests in root (if root is document root) to /drupal.

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /drupal/$1 [L]

But why not move everything from drupal into root?
