This ain't the regex help desk! ;) :)

Here are some great resources. Do some reading and someone will probably help you debug YOUR solution if necessary.

...And we should point out that the usual application of mod_rewrite is to rewrite static URLs to dynamic URLs for input to your scripts. Your scripts and pages output links like category/store/filter/flowers/from/0/rows/20/ for users and robots to see and link to, and mod_rewrite is then used to convert these into the form needed to call your script when one of these static URLs is requested.

That is, mod_rewrite is used to translate an http request for [yourdomain.com...] into a request for /main.php?load=store&filter=flowers&from=0&rows=20 and activate your php script.
