Need help redirect url

    I converted my vb4 forum to xf a week ago, thread & forums url redirecting works perfect, I need help in redirection some other urls.
    My xf is installed in "mysite.com/community/" folder, I have php 5.3.3, Apache 2.2.16, Debian squeeze.

    1- I want to redirect all www to non-www. I found this in searching here:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://yourdomain.com/$1 [L,R=301]
    Is it good for my case ?

    2- Nothing is installed in my site homepage "mysite.com/", I want to redirect this page to my xenporta page: http://mysite.com -----> http://mysite.com/community/portal/

    3- My old vb4 forum was installed in "mysite.com/forums/" folder, all thread and forums urls redirecting works great, except the vb home page. I want this redirect: http://mysite.com/forums/ -----> http://mysite.com/community/

    4- I have static content located in "mysite.com/quran" folder: http://mysite.com/quran/ as a home page for this static content, and http://mysite.com/quran/page1.html, http://mysite.com/quran/page2.html, ... as different pages for that content.
    Now I have transferred this content using xf pages system, so I want these redirects:
    http://mysite.com/quran/ ----------------> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/
    http://mysite.com/quran/page1.html ---> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/page1/
    http://mysite.com/quran/page2.html ---> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/page2/
    http://mysite.com/quran/page18.html ---> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/page18/

    Thank you.

    1) To enforce no "www" in the /community directory, add these two lines to XenForo's .htaccess file in the /community directory:

    #	Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #	cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    #	SecFilterEngine Off
    #	SecFilterScanPOST Off
    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    	RewriteEngine On
    	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^yoursite\.com$
    	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://yoursite.com/community/$1 [R=301,L]
    	#	If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    	#	line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    	#	of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    	#RewriteBase /xenforo
    	#	This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
    	#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    	RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    	RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
    	RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

    2) You can upload an "index.php" file to the web root with this:

    header("Location: http://mysite.com/community/portal/");
    3) Similar to #2.

    4) Use this .htaccess file in the /quran directory:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^page([0-9]+)\.html$ /community/pages/quran/page$1/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^$ /community/pages/quran/ [R=301,L]

    Thank you Jake. That works great.

    About the 4th point, page's names are not page1, page2, ... I did that just to explain that there are many pages.
    Page's names are like: affasi.html, sudays.html, ... so the redirects shoul be:
    http://mysite.com/quran/affasi.html ---> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/affasi/
    http://mysite.com/quran/sudays.html ---> http://mysite.com/community/pages/quran/sudays/
    Please update the last code.
    Sorry for that.
