I am changing webhost to current site and website is set with temp URL.
When i turn on SEF in joomla 1.5 all my links give me a Not Found (404)error eveything works fine when its turned off.
The htaccess.txt file in public_html already reads '.htaccess'.
Very much a novice, any clues?

Hello Davidos,

What you want to do is perform a hosts file modification on your site. This should allow you to use your actual domain name from your location and the SEF URLs should then perform correctly.

We have an article here on how to perform a hosts file modification for your PC. In case you have a Mac, you can click here for that version.

Best Regards,
Scott M
