PHP Link Fail

I had a friend call me up with an issue on her site.  All of her pages are linked as follows:

http://www.brinkstreetphotography.com/site/#/home/
http://www.brinkstreetphotography.com/site/#/portraits/
http://www.brinkstreetphotography.com/site/#/contact/
etc...

This works fine in FF, but fails miserably in IE.  If the '#' is removed, as IE is inclined to do for you, the link fails.  I can answer question related to directory structure, etc.  I am not a PHP guy, but I can work my way around with a little prodding.  :)

Why is the # there?  How do I get rid of it and still access the link?

It looks like there are some kind of URL rewriting active on the site, most likely due to SEF needs.

If this is a UNix/Linux server, then look for a file called .htaccess in the root - the rewrite rules will be in there.

Here's the code from the htaccess at the root of the site directory.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

# Enables mod_rewrite
RewriteEngine on

# Sets the base folder of the site
RewriteBase  /jackson/site/

RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}    !-f
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_FILENAME}    !-d
RewriteRule  .*                     index.php

</IfModule>

Open in new window

I really wonder what do you mean by "This works fine in FF, but fails miserably in IE" because I checked to open those links in both IE8 and FF3.6.x and they both looks fine.

If the '#' is removed then all links will fail both in IE and FF.

Why is the # there?  
Well, I think it works like the anchor tag in your flash file. I believe you might seen such link like this :
http://www.someothersite.com/index.html#topofthepage

How do I get rid of it and still access the link?
I think you should ask your programmer to modify the flash file and assign a new linking for each of tha pages.
