but there was nothing else and the link just took me back to the homepage. I need to know how to rename .htm, .html, .jpg and .gif files to lower case.

Also, since this is arising because my ISP switched from WinNT to Linux, my web address will be changing from to
He says there is no way to set up a redirect to the old address, which has been in the search engines for 8 years now along with a lot of the other pages.
Is this true? If not, how is it set up? And, does it have to be done for each page on the site?

Any help appreciated.
