I've been having some trouble with mod_rewrite, pretty much because in my tests the patterns are ok, but when I write them to my .htaccess apache drives me to my 404. Can anybody help?
Here's the .htaccess located in my /public_html/ (Atleast the part that matters)

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^search/\?q=(.+)&s=([0-9]+)$ index.php?act=search&q=$1&start=$2 [L]

RewriteRule ^search/?$ index.php?act=search [L]

RewriteRule ^about/?$ index.php?act=about [L]

# Errors rule
RewriteRule ^403/?$ http://www.trancemirror.com/index.php?act=error&id=403 [f,L]
RewriteRule ^404/?$ http://www.trancemirror.com/index.php?act=error&id=404 [L]
RewriteRule ^500/?$ http://www.trancemirror.com/index.php?act=error&id=500 [L]

ErrorDocument 404 http://www.trancemirror.com/404/
ErrorDocument 403 http://www.trancemirror.com/403/
ErrorDocument 500 http://www.trancemirror.com/500/
Problem is at the search rules.. I test my Regular Expressions using a software called "Expresso", an image with my problem is attached.
This rule
RewriteRule ^search/\?q=(.+)&s=([0-9]+)$ index.php?act=search&q=$1&start=$2 [L]
just doesn't work! I hope somebody can help me with this.
Thanks in advance,

Looking at the offending line, the only thing that jumps out at me is matching (.+) might eat everything all the way to the end of the line. As it's supposed to stop at &, try this:

RewriteRule ^search/\?q=([^&]+)&s=([0-9]+)$ index.php?act=search&q=$1&start=$2 [L]
