Exception in mod-rewrite rule


I have to change a mod-rewrite rule from a server where Mambo CMS is installed. The default htaccess is this one:
Redirect Permanent /home
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [r=301,L]

#  Uncomment following line if your webserver's URL
#  is not directly related to physical file paths.
#  Update YourMamboDirectory (just / for root)
# RewriteBase /YourMamboDirectory
#  Rules
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php
I set up a new directory called "test", in it is another htaccess file that rewrites the URL for a page with US states. The htaccess file in "test" is this:
      RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule ^(AK|AL|AR|AS|AZ|CA|CO|CT|DC|DE|FL|FM|GA|GU|HI|IA|ID|IL|IN|KS|KY|LA|MA|MD|ME|MH|MI|MN|MO|MP|MS|MT|NC|ND|NE|NH|NJ|NM|NV|NY|OH|OK|OR|PA|PR|PW|RI|SC|SD|TN|TX|UT|VA|VI|VT|WA|WI|WV|WY)/([^/]*)/?([^/]*)/?([0-9]*)/?([^/]*)/?([^/]*)/?$ index.php?state=$1&cityprefix=$2&city=$3&zip=$4&category=$5&subcategory=$6 [L]
But when I go now to or or whatever it does not allow me to run the file because it somehow handels the directory as one of the root Mambo files.

My question is now, how to I change the first htaccess file so it rewrites the URL only if it is NOT "test", or to let me run "test" directory and ignoring the other rules.

Thank you!

Kind regards, Boby.
