You could do as darrel has suggested and but if you want automatic redirection 
the you want to put a script in place that detects what useragent a browser is 
using. Below are some. the WURFL database will give you huge list of useragents.

 IE 6 .0 on Windows XP SP2 with .NET Framework 1.1 installed: Mozilla/4.0 
(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) 
 IE7 beta running on Windows Vista ? Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0b; 
Windows NT 6.0) 
 Firefox 1.5b1 on Windows XP ? Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; 
rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050908 Firefox/1.4 
 Opera 8.51 on Windows XP ? Opera/8.51 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) 
 Pocket PC IE on Windows Mobile 2003 ? Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; 
Windows CE; PPC; 240x320
 Nokia 6230 Mobile Phone: 

 You will need to use ASP which is server-side detection rather than javascript 
with alot of mobile phones have trouble with.
 You could try this code below, though you wil  need a large list of user 
 userAgent = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT")
 isMobile = false 
 if((InStr(userAgent, "AvantGo") > 0) OR (InStr(userAgent, "Windows CE") > 0) 
OR (InStr(userAgent, "NetFront") > 0) OR (InStr(userAgent, "BlackBerry") > 0) ) 
 isMobile = true 
 end if 
 if isMobile then 
 end if 

 Hope this helps
