Moving all my Movable Type 3.2 feeds to feedburner

I have been trying on and off for the past year to migrate my feeds to feedburner. I finally decided last night to address the issue and now have a working solution for Movable Type 3.2.
1 – Change the index.xml template so it generates a different xml file e.g index-ff.xml
2- Point your feedburner feed to this new file
3 – Create a .htaccess in the same directory as your published feed files e.g. index.xml
4 – Edit .htaccess file and add the following entries e.g
Redirect /index.xml http://feeds.feedburner.com/irishsilicon
5 – Delete the exisitng index.xml file
6 – If you have other feed files such as index.rdf you should repeat steps 4 and 5
Feedburner allows me to add links to sites such as Digg as well as the functionality to email the article
