I've just built a new website and would like to 301 redirect the pages on the site which it will take over from to their nearest equivalents on the new site, on a page-by-page basis.

However the old site is on an IIS server and I have no experience of this; what's more, the instructions I can find online look very daunting. I have no idea how to get into the IIS manager etc etc.

Can anyone see a problem with setting up some new web space on an Apache server, updating the DNS to point the old domain there, and setting up a .htaccess redirection scheme (which I understand!) on the new space?

Sounds like a good idea, I have no experience with Apache or Mod Rewrite though, but I'm pretty sure it would work.
