I have wordpress installed in the root folder of my webspace so wp sort of handles the whole webspace as for dealing with file and page requests from visitors and if it doesn't find something a page not found error message page is shown . . .

great basically but now I am creating another website with another software (zenphoto) in a subdirectory on my webspace . . . zenphoto seems to operate with virtual / temporary folders or whatever so I am getting page not found errors from the root folder wordpress installation for links concerning that subdirectory and content of the other site . . .

so quick summary of the problem and related question:

can I set wordpress to NOT care about that one subdirectory on my webspace where I want to host my other website? as in not caring whether a requested file is there or not and not showing a page not found error message page . . . but letting the request go through, letting zenphoto handle it or letting it hit the wall - server 404 error message but just not caring about anything about that subdirectory at all?
