The current site            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, or

it takes them to the drupal site?

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

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} !-f
    RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /drupal/$1 [L]

    But why not move everything from drupal into root?
