Mod_rewrite exclude directory

How can I exclude one directory from mod_rewrite?

Following is the contents of my .htaccess file.

 <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine on

  RewriteBase /

  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
I have a directory with name 'abc' in my document root. Whenever I access this directory my server is returning me the 404 error message. If I turn off the mod_rewrite I am able to access this directory.

Please help

RewriteCond /your/docroot/abc/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
RewriteRule ^(.+) /your/docroot/abc/$1 [L]
