    Could it be something fishy with your PHP.ini file?

    Just a thought (desperation sinks in...)

    SOLVED IT!!

    this is going to sound so stupid that we both missed it.. I am embarrassed, but here it is.

    It was a simple syntax error. I left off the beginning "/"... thats it

    so this

    PHP Code:
    Redirect 301 about/articles.html http://www.website.com/about/press.php 
    should be

    PHP Code:
    Redirect 301 /about/articles.html http://www.website.com/about/press.php 
    notice the "/" at the beginning of the old URL...and viola.. now it works perfect!

    yeah, so, for the record, despite all of the horror stories for getting this 301 Redirect to work with GoDaddy you can find on Google, it will work. things must have changed from all those posts I read about how hard they make it.

    just need to check you syntax

    BTW, for the record I actually used

    301 permanent and not 301 Redirect - but "technically" either should work
