Hi people

Having a sticky time with a simple mod rewrite, should be easy but I just cant seem to get it to work tonight.

My incoming URL will look like

I want it to rewrite into

ie the whole query is to passed as the value of 'slug' including any and all backslashes

Ive tried

Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ index.php?slug=$1
and variants to no avail

TIA
