Default how do I make my download.cgi pages into html pages?

Hi everybody,
I run a mp3 search engine site and I have a big problem that I have been trying to figure out in the past month now but has been impossible to figure out. The download pages of my mp3 search look like this for example: http://audioseek.net/agree.cgi?id=378959&dl=0&type=1

now google.com's crawler does NOT index cgi pages because their crawler does not pass through cgi pages unfortunately =(

So what I have figured out so far is that I need to do a MOD RE-WRITE in my .HTACCESS fle in my server so the http://audioseek.net/agree.cgi?id=378959&dl=0&type=1 page would be converted into a HTML page like for example this site's download page: http://emp3finder.com/download/412880/

now as u can see this page is a HTML page and therefore google.com's crawler adds those pages to their search.

so basically what I need is a mod re-write in my .HTACCESS of my server that makes my download pages into the kind of http://emp3finder.com/download/412880/
as u can see this page passes through NO CGI script when a person tries to access this page

but since my page: http://audioseek.net/agree.cgi?id=378959&dl=0&type=1

passes through a cgi script google.com will not add them in their search engine.

I would REALLY REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT SOO MUCH!!! if someone can help me out with this. either post on this board if you can help me or ICQ me at 63125103 or email me at nima@audioseek.net

Once again i would appreciate it so much if you can help me figure out how to do this and thank you in advance

I'm not familiar with the way to do it with MOD RE-WRITE but currently I do this with my web sites by using a one line HTML file with a SSI to the location of the script.

Yes, the SSI calls a script and all search engines have no trouble indexing them (as they would have no idea it was generated by a script). There's only one line in each file which is:

<!--#include virtual="/path/to/script.cgi?vars"-->

Currently this is the way I design all sites to be search engine friendly and receive content from the same script. Usually I write another script to generate each .html page so as to not have to spend time doing them manually.
