I'm in the process of moving my website from a Windows host to an Linux/Apache hos. I have several dynamically generated ASP pages that I'd like to redirect to a single CGI script, once I switch over my DNS. for example, I'd like URL's such as these:
[oldsite.com...]
[oldsite.com...]

all redirect to a new page, such as:
[newsite.com...]

now there are dozens of the soon-to-be old URL's (same base URL, just different values in the query string), but I'd like them to all redirect to a single new URL.
Any suggestions on how to approach this?
