    I'm trying to access category-based RSS feeds of my site via permalinks:

    http://www.zkunited.com/wp/?feed=rss2&cat=9

    ...but don't want to use the category ID as an identifier ('cat=9') -- I need to be able to access my categories by their NAMES and not their numbers. Anybody know how to do this? I've searched high and low and have come across arcane high-tech geek speak documents about .htaccess files and mod_rename or something of the like, and tried really hard to follow what they said but there's no human-language step-by-step tutorial. Ferrrusterrrating!

    Will this do?

    http://www.zkunited.com/wp/?feed=rss2&category_name=flash

    Setting up something more "cruft-free" such as:

    /category/flash/feed/rss2/

    requires configuring custom permalinks (Options > Permalinks). This is typically what's referred to when .htaccess is brought up. You can find more on that here:
