In order to create pretty/fancy URLs, your program, in this case Greenstone,
needs to support setting fancy URLs or you need to set up a reverse proxy
(which is much more complicated than mod_rewite).
In a quick bit of research, it does not seem that Greenstone does. You might
want to ask a Greenstone users list. you can find Greenstone support
resources here: http://www.greenstone.org/support

To set up a reverse proxy, you will need to know how the URLs in Greenstone
are created. I understand that the program is open-source and written in C++
and some Java (and maybe more), so you should be able to find that out
without too much trouble.
