Put this in your site root's .htaccess

Note: make sure it is ABOVE the WordPress block or it won't work.

That'll at least get them to the day's archive.  Even better would be  
to redirect to a PHP script that'd either look in BlogWare's  
database, or consult a giant PHP array, and figure out EXACTLY what  
post is trying to be viewed, and redirect to that, but that's  
considerably more work than just pasting that one line into  
your .htaccess
