Value of links

I have a site that has about 600 links to it from different sites (and provide a lot of traffic), but a lot of these come from my dmoz listing.  Do the likes of Google etc see these as actual individual incoming links or does it realize they're all from the same source in reality.

>a lot of these come from my dmoz listing

Do you mean from sites that are copying the dmoz listing and displaying it in their own directories?

>Do the likes of Google etc see these as actual individual incoming links

Yes for PR purposes every link counts (except link farms, bad neighborhoods etc.).

How are you counting 600 links? Something like linkdomain:www.mysite.com in Yahoo?

Well I presume their just linking to dmoz for the results.
Use a program called ICLinx which uses that method to get the results

I am not familiar with ICLinx but all links count. I notice in Google that your higher PR links nearly all come from the same site and the anchor text is InTouch. Not many people search for InTouch I suspect :) so it's a bit of a waste. If you targeted, for example, the key phrase 'web hosting' and got the anchor text changed to 'Web Hosting' it would be much better. Anyway I am sure you get the picture by now - key phrase in title, body text and anchor!
