Google follows some redirections and ignores others.  However, the only redirect that will reliably pass PageRank to the destination page is a permanent (ie. 301) redirect.  This means a redirect that returns an HTTP 301 status code - www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec10.html#sec10.3.2.

You have a few options for setting this up depending on what server platform you're using and whether or not you have access to the server config as well.

Aside from the different home/landing pages, those are essentially duplicate sites.  This has the potential to create problems with Google, which doesn't like duplicate content.  In this case, you should redirect the secondary domains to the primary domain using a permanent (301) redirect.

BTW - you should also note that your masthead doesn't render properly in Firefox.

You may or may not be familiar with Firefox (www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/).  It's a web browser that is becoming increasingly popular, although Internet Explorer remains the most commonly used browser by far.  For a variety of reasons, different browsers interpret and thus display HTML code a little bit differently from time to time.

Many web developers will test their designs in multiple web browsers to make sure that they are cross-browser compatible.  Personally, I test in IE, Firefox, and Opera, although some people test in more.  Anyway, I've posted a screen shot of how your page looks in Firefox (1024x768 resolution, 19" monitor - image resized) - www.humeniuk.com/images/aei.jpg.  You can address that with your designer as you see fit.
