We recently launched a new site that has a different permalink stucture than its prior one.

Old site URL was like this:

New like this:

Simply setting up a 301 redirect doesn't work:
Redirect 301 http://centerline.net/blog/detail/?p=3989 http://centerline.net/cxo-content-conversations-part-1-is-your-content-lacking-eminence/

I'm assuming that something in the new installs rewrite rules is fighting with it. Is there a way to systematically redirect from the old site's URLs to the new ones?
