Not really i dont think, i thought the re-firect was to stop you from fooling the search engines by putting a permanent relocate to the new location.?

sorry for my sparse answer,

A 301 redirect is more of an ethical way to redirect than a meta redirect.

That's OK shane, thanks. So we have a hosting package with 2 domains. One domain is pointing towards the root directory and one domain is pointing to a subdirectory named bear. Am I correct in assuming that both will rank equally? I just want to make sure before I send my family member to thousands of hours of SEO.

thanks

Yeah they should do if you set up the forwarding domain correctly, i.e so that it keeps the second domain in the url.,

I am trying it on my sites now. Still too early for results but from what i have been told from my mentors, it will treat it as a totally seperate website.

I think you hit on the key thing, Shane, that it keeps the domain in the url when redirecting. I think it's OK.
