Assuming I understand what you're going for here...

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+) http://$1.test.com/ [L,R]

This will capture the first part of the URL path and use it as the
hostname in your domain. It will NOT, in this form, add any other
pathing info; you *could* have something like this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/([^/]+)(/.*)? http://$1.test.com$2 [L,R]

...which would append any of the URI path data *after* the initial part
to the the target. This may or may not be in keeping with what you have
in mind, but I figured I'd toss it out there.

Well, if it's always going to be the case that www.test.com/PATH maps to
http://PATH.test.com/, the above rule will handle all the cases. If
there are other cases that need handling, you can add rules for them;
note that order *may* matter, depending on the nature of the rules.
