hi Ashar,

thanks for your reply.  i don't think i quite understand how to
separate out /w/ and /wiki/.  at the moment i have mediawiki
installed at /wiki/ right out of the box.  the rewrite rules are 
in /wiki/.htaccess, and LocalSettings.php are appropriately tweaked.  
($wqArticlePath=/wiki/$1;)
i still haven't figured out how to put the scripts and the images 
somewhere else not accessible directly. 

thanks for your help.
