    just create page using a template which contains only text which you want to show your visitors.

    you can install wordpress in sub folder and work on your wordpress

    else redirect your home page to your index html page it will work. i never used it but i am sure because your visitors will be redirected to your html pages and they see only old site not wordpress.

    if you face problem than let me known i will try this on my test blog

    I installed the wp in the same directory. My previous index.html changed to index.html_. Now I redirected index.php to index.html but it isn't working. Am I making some mistake?

    redirect your main website like this http://www.yourwebsite.com >> http://www.yourwebsite.com/index.html let me know if it work
    or you can change index.html to some other filename

    I changed index.php to index1.php. Now when I need to visit wordpress site, I type site.com/index1.php. But I believe its not the correct method. That plugin isn't working as well.
