Redirect Homepage (i.e. no Store Homepage ever)

I’ve found a few threads discussing redirects in Magento. I’d like to basically set the store’s homepage to the root of my site.
For instance:
http://www.mydomain.com/store/ always redirects to http://www.mydomain.com/

If it’s as simple as editing the .htaccess file, lemme know. I just assume that the URL for the root of the store is needed for other store items.

I basically don’t want a store home page at all, and would rather specify that HOME in breadcrumbs, continue shopping, etc. doesn’t go to the root of the store (homepage), but rather the root of my site.

Any thoughts on how to do this?

Thanks

I did figure out the following… could add an htaccess file to the root of my site with this directive:

RedirectMatch /store/$ http://www.mymaindomain.com/

This took care of basically anyone going to the URL specifically /store off my domain, and rerouting them to the root of the site.
Everything else taking place in the store under the /store directory (i.e. ALL of magento) still works fine.

However, this doesn’t technically take care of the breadcrumbs that link home… or the continue shopping… or some other links I’m probably not considering that magento wants to take people to the /store url.
