/archives and /categories broken!

  1. I'm having a problem with a WordPress install move from my old system (Debian/Hosted/PHP4) to my new system (Gentoo/Personal/PHP5). I have everything migrated: settings, database, etc., but my /archives and /categories are not working on the new server.

    http://dmiessler.com/archives/936 (works)
    http://new.dmiessler.com/archives/936 (doesn't work)

    Here's my .htaccess for both, and I've confirmed that mod_rewrite is also running on the new system:
    `

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    # Redirect FeedBurner to your own Feed
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^feedburner_369591/?$ /feed/ [R,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^FeedBurner.*$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # These Rules redirect all feed Traffic to FeedBurner
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^feed=(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/dmiessler [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)?/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/dmiessler [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^wp-(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom).php http://feeds.feedburner.com/dmiessler [R,L]
    # These are the standard WordPress Rules
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    So the question becomes: if it works on the old one and not on the new one (and the .htaccess files match), what else can be different?

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
