While it has been a while since I have messed with WordPress MU., I think that the best way to achieve what you are trying to do is to install WordPress Mu in /home/username/thinkmate/ rather than /home/username/thinkmate/blog.

IIRC WordPress MU re-write rules should handle that automatically if you don’t install WordPress in a subdirectory, but like I said, it has been awhile since I have messes with it (I use lyceum).

Have you visited the WordPress MU forum? There is a lot of information about this kind of stuff over there. :wink:
