I'm using it this way. Here is my config:

--- /etc/apache2/modules.d/20_mod_fastcgi.conf
FastCgiExternalServer /var/www/mysite/html/anyname -host

--- /var/www/mysite/html/.htaccess
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
# the media/ dir and static.html file should be served by apache in usual
# way, without using fastcgi:
RewriteRule ^(media/.*)$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^(static.html)$ - [L]
# everything else (any url, even url which point to non-existent file)
# should be served by fastcgi server running on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(/anyname)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /anyname/$1 [L]

To test your configuration you can run this perl oneliner (you may need
to install CGI::Fast module from CPAN first):

$ perl -MCGI::Fast=:all -e 'print header,++$i while new CGI::Fast'

You doesn't need to have file '/var/www/mysite/html/anyname', but if it
will exists it doesn't hurt.
