url redirect on IIS 7

How can I redirect old URLs, to their new location.

Here is what I want to do...

I have this URL

http://www.mysite.com/forums/categories.cfm?catid=18&zb=3848346
and it moved to the following location
http://forums.mysite.com/categories.cfm?catid=18&zb=3848346

Is it possible to setup a rule on the URL Rewrite settings?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this rule

                <rule name="remove forums folder" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="forums/(.*)" />
                    <action type="Redirect" url="{R:1}" />
                </rule>

Oh sorry read it wrong I thought you just wanted to remove the forums folder.

<rule name="remove forums folder" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="forums/(.*)" />
      <action type="Redirect" url="http://forums.mysite.com/{R:1}" />
</rule>
