Mod Rewriting Whole Directory

I really hate to post here and not having tried and tried and tried ..

So I did just that last night until I almost threw the bloody laptop out the window.

What I am trying to do is simple:

I have a subdirectory /de/ where I would like to place a .htaccess to rewrite all underlying urls to one dynamic page, where the querystring is the rest of the path. My closest attempt was:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ pages.php?url=$1

which gives me 'pages.php' as my $url?!

Is anybody kind enough to help me here?

... but a very common problem. The mod_rewrite [httpd.apache.org] documentation has a section titled Ruleset Processing [httpd.apache.org] that offers insight as to how the engine processes the rulesets.
