I have answered this before :)

This is the access rule I use to match subdomains with a folder that has the
same name as the subdomain:

Get subdomain:
<dtml-let hostname="_.string.join(_.string.split(_.string.split(HTTP_HOST,
':')[0], '.')[0], '')">
Is there a folder named as this subdomain?
  <dtml-try>
     <dtml-if "_[hostname]">
        Set logical root: <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('SiteRootPATH', '/')">
        Add physical root: <dtml-call "REQUEST.path.append(hostname)">   
     </dtml-if>
   <dtml-except KeyError>
      <dtml-call "RESPONSE.redirect('http://penguinpowered.com/NoHostHere')">
   </dtml-try>
</dtml-let>

Then there has to be a site root in each folder, where the path and base are
*empty*.

Hope that helps,
