Doing this will give you archives at /blog/date/title-of-post, but wouldn't
give you a blog, regular-style at /blog/

and then adding two custom rewrite

That would be a loop, I suppose (trying to redirect /blog to / and / to
somewhere else, that is). Besides it is not advisable to have a /index.php
and have a rewriterule for "/" thus expecting index.php to NOT be the index
file for the root directory.

Maybe what you said is just the beginning and there is a good way to do it
with only rewrite rules and a custom permalink structure prefix, but when I
tried to do what I did, my wordpress files, and blog were at
public_html/blog/ and i wanted to have the "Pages" at public_html, and the
blog at public_html/blog, along with all the wordpress "core" files.

I am not known for thinking too straight :P
