htaccess/sh404sef Help Needed

Hoping someone can help me. Please be aware that we are on a very tight timeline of getting this resolved by Sunday. If you are available immediately, please bid. If you cannot start immediately, please do not bid.

Recently had to move our corporate website off an private inhouse CMS system onto Joomla.

We have well over 1000 pages listed in google all going to the old site.

One of the biggest issues is our blog.

The old URL was [url removed, login to view]

The new site uses [url removed, login to view]

We tried to redirect the URL using htaccess but anytime someone clicks on a old link in Google, the site returns an 404 error.

While going to [url removed, login to view] redirects to [url removed, login to view] which is correct but, clicking on an actual blog post from google, for instance: [url removed, login to view] returns a 404 error.

I put the following code in our htaccess file:

#Redirect old blog to new blog

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^blog\.firestorm\.com [NC]

RewriteRule ^(.*) [url removed, login to view] [NC] [R=301,L]

#Redirect /blog to new blog

redirect /blog [url removed, login to view]

#Redirect non-www urls to www

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.firestorm\.com

RewriteRule (.*) [url removed, login to view]$1 [R=301,L]

I should also mention we are using sh404SEF to handle the SEF of the site.

If you have experience with htaccess files and sh404SEF and can spend an hour helping us set this up so the links currently indexed in Google and other search engines redirect to the proper pages, please respond asap.

If the web servers logfile can be read and maybe the log-level can be changed for debugging, if need would be, it should be not a really big problem. I'm available only today - not any more on Sunday. Thank you.
