OK, than this rule:
RewriteRule  /(.*)       /purl/purl.php?purl=$1

Should do it.

Using rewrite rules in .htaccess files is tricky. If you have access
to your webserver's config (as you apparently have) it is better to
have it in your config file. Try that first.

Also add this to your config:
RewriteLog   <some logfile name>
RewriteLogLevel 9

you will then get a rewrite log showing everything that happens, which
is great for finding out problems.

And finally, read the doc:
