Sorry to the mods for having to move this, but thanks.
@Ht1815, I don't even know where to put that. I feel that my php skills have improved quite a bit since joining this forum but I still lack in certain areas.
@Svidgen, I guess that's what I'm wanting. I also want to be able to send them to http://example.com/article/200203226 from urls embedded in my pages... for SEO purposes... :D I believe the site is currently running IIS 7.0 it's a godaddy hosted site, with a windows hosting package (I'd like to switch to linux but the guy who owns the account is stubborn)

IIS has a GUI for setting this sort of thing up. You can write some rules in .htaccess/mod_rewrite format initially, if you like, and then import them into IIS.
The mod_rewrite rule might look something like this:
^article/([0-9]+)$ index.php?ArticleID=$1 [L,QSA]
... But, it might be easiest just to open the IIS administration app and start poking around in the URL rewriting area.

I guess I need to really look into changing the host account to a linux because godaddy doesn't allow any changes to the IIS besides blocking directories.
I don't even understand this mod_rewrite thing, any idea where I should go to learn about stuff like that?
