As far as I can tell, there are not any users yet hitting these links.  It 
is just the Google spider causing all these errors.   Since it is the 
spider causing problems, my 404 page will have no effect.

Will the mod_rewrite take care of links like this - 
/One_Time/Household_Items/Lawn_and_Garden/\forum\ ?
