Deploy rails app on rackspace server fcgi problem

I need some help with mod rewrite. I’m trying to setup a Rails
application to use fcgi on a rackspace server.

Tech support provided me with the following .htaccess


RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^$ /public/index.html [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/parroquia/public
RewriteRule ^(.)$ /public/$1 [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.
)$ public/dispatch.fcgi/$1 [QSA,L]

This files sits in the httpdocs folder and the Rails app is in

When I try to access the domain I get an internal server error.

The apache error log states the following

apache error log
[Mon Sep 29 16:23:27 2008] [error] [client] Request
exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable
configuration error. Use ‘LimitInternalRecursion’ to increase the
limit if necessary. Use ‘LogLevel debug’ to get a backtrace.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks again,
