best bet is to use mod rewrites - but it really depends on the naming convention of the files in your previous set up...

You can also use .htaccess for that ,but I`m not sure about the effect of that on old`s pages ranking.

If you do proper redirects, I believe Google has said PageRank (and other things I assume) should transfer correctly.

That is the best thing you can do. Permanent Redirects 301.

If you cannot use .htaccess, you still can do that with PHP or ASP scripting.

Im pretty sure when a bot sees a 301 it sees the domain it redirects to so your PR is the same.

Thanks for the great links on 301 redirects.

I am about to move from a MS Windows server to a Linux server and the URLS using APACHE are all different... I wanted to not only save my page rank but hopefully increase it with the cleaner MODrewrite URLs
