Permalink Settings In Wordpress

Damn, I started off wrong. I had this setting:

http: // /2009/08/27/sample-post/

But everything I've read says use Custom Structure and put this there - /%postname%/

Matt Cutts From Google said it -

Donít include the post date in your URL.

This one the same -

So all the expert Wordpress SEO's say use Custom and put in /%postname%/

So what do I do with the pages I have already?

So I updated my permalinks, now my pages indexed go to 404 pages. So I need to redirect somehow. Or maybe since I just have a few posts, just delete them and start over? Only have about 4 hits so wouldn't be a big deal.
