XF 1.5 redirects from SMF to Xenfor with Domain change

About to jump and want to make sure i do not screw up this part of it
current server is at http://southerncaliforniahunting.com/huntersforum/
new site is at http://schoutdoors.com

thread ID's were imported and seem consistent

the old site had a joomla site at http://southerncaliforniahunting.com and the forum at http://southerncaliforniahunting.com/huntersforum/

We want everything that is not a thread to go to root of the new domain name.

Thank you for the help :)

Add these rules to the top of the .htaccess file in http://southerncaliforniahunting.com/huntersforum :

RewriteEngine On

# redirect threads
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|\?|&)topic=([0-9]+)\.[0-9]+($|&)
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ http://schoutdoors.com/index.php?threads/%2/ [R=301,L]

# catch all for everything else
RewriteRule ^.*$ http://schoutdoors.com/? [R=301,L]
ok we just made the change and everything is redirecting back to the home page on the new site. none of the old links are redirecting properly

Thanks For the Help
i am sorry... the redirects are working great. i bookmarked a few links before the switch in a forum i closed. Sorry and thank you again :) so far very very happy and our users are happy
