Converting Apache ReWrite Rules to Zeus Webserver

I run a Wordpress Weblog for work and I'd like to have Search Engine friendly URLs, like I have on my 4-club.co.uk weblog. Unfortunately work's hosting company runs Zeus webservers not Apache.

Zeus uses an entirely different set of rules to do ReWrites so the .htaccess file automatically generated by Wordpress is useless.

If I want to use SEOd URLs I'm going to have to translate the Apache ReWrite rules to Zeus. That means I'm going to have to learn both the Apache rules and the Zeus rules.

I'll need to convert about 30 lines of this:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^[^/]*\.html$ index.php

into this:

match URL into $ with ^[^\/]*\.html$
if matched then
set URL = index.php
endif

Does that make any sense to you?

You lost me at "hello"

The short answer, is no. I rememeber trying to set this up for textpattern and couldn't get it working. You can try of course and try some googling.

btw upgrade to WordPress 2.0 before you start, the rewrite rules have decreased dramatically.
