Rewrite rule

A previous web developer decided ot redirect all domain.com URLs to www.domain.com. Now, we need to have a subdomain called members.domain.com and forums.domain.com, but that won't work because of the way the rewire rule is written. Further, I cannot change the rewrite rule, because it will break SEO.

I need to specifically allow members.domain.com and forums.domain.com (i.e., the rewrite rule should ignore those subdomains, but re-direct everything else).

How do I re-write that?

Here's the .htaccess file we're working with:

 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule .? http://www.domain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
