ATT service on Linux (i know it can be done but how?)

I know this question has been discussed before but wasn't really
interested until now.  Maybe it's the holidays - thankfully over for
another 360 or so days - but my dialup connection has been molasses
for days.  Has me about ready to try something different.  Would I be
able to get this ATT service working with Linux??

I do have an XP box available.

Thanks for your help and Happy New Year.

Do know for sure you can not get PVCO?  Coverage map:

Man!  That map has been loading for about five minutes and still not
half done.  :(

OK finally loaded.  My area looks pretty spotty.  Phone service would
then have to be over the internet right?  Well, I don;t want my
computer running all the time so maybe this isn't such a good idea
(even if I could get service) . . .

forwarding referrer links to another site

I'm helping to move a site that has a folder whose content now resides
elsewhere. We want to delete it but there are many referrer links to
it coming from other sites.  Is there a way to have any links going to
files in that folder forwarded to the index page at the new location?
I'm thinking that can be done via .htaccess but I don't have a clue
how to put the syntax together.  I know there are sys admins on this
list that could do that in their sleep and I'm hoping one of you will
be able to help out.

Thanks

Google is your friend:

The first link is excellent:

Re: forwarding referrer links to another site

OK.  So I just got up but . . . that's not making a lot of sense.  I
neither want to direct specific pages nor an entire domain.  I only
want to redirect a specific folder to another domain.  Maybe it will
make more sense in a few hours.

Or maybe someone else will jump in?

Re: forwarding referrer links to another site

So, if someone goes to a web folder, something like http://www.blah.org/, that
usually corresponds to a folder. If the webserver is configured to default to an
index.html (or .php, or .whatever), that particular default file could contain a
redirect. Therefore, http://www.blah.org/ actually serves up
http://www.blah.org/index.html which could then redirect to a different website.
Further, the http://www.blah.org/anothersite/ folder could have an index.html
file that redirects, the http://www.blah.org/anothersite/ReallyIMeanIt/ could
have an index.html file that redirects, and so on.

I'm sure there are some magic tricks if you want something more involved.

Look more closely on the .htaccess solution - it is unfortunate that they 
list it under redirecting servers, while it really applies to folders. And 
also read up on the Apache documentation[1]. You'll find that a .htaccess 
can be made to apply to a folder and RewriteRule uses RegExp, so have 
fun... ;-)

Re: forwarding referrer links to another site

OK.  Here's an update.

Tom's index.html idea doesn't work if the incoming link is to a
specific file in the folder.  Instead it pulls up a file not found
message.  (There were no other files in the folder at the time.)

I could do a meta refresh on every page but that's not very search
engine friendly and there are hundreds of pages that would need to be
tweaked.  And they'd still be there on the server - not tidy.

I spent some time with mod_rewrite and have gotten absolutely nowhere.
 (It did however put me in a very bad mood!).  I tried this and that
and nothing worked.

Here are the specifics and I'm hoping that someone will be able to put
together something I can just copy and paste into .htaccess.
PLEASE???

Any hit coming to the folder (or any of the files in it) at
http://www.geaction.org/truefood/ needs to be redirected to
http://truefoodnow.org.

There's gotta be a way to do this.

PLEASE HELP!

Thanks,

Sister
