Mod_Rewrite help for a noob please

I want to rewrite all URLs of the form:

http://www.site.com/push20/dir1/dir2/afile.html

to

http://www.site.com/dir1/dir2/afile.html

I.e. lose the 'push20' bit

Ive tried with:

   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteRule   ^push20/(.*) /$1 [R]

Open in new window


but its not happening....

Suggestion please!
