    Check whether the links are passing through a redirect or if they link straight to your site.

    Most have a search feature if you want to check whether you are listed.:)

    Right click your link and go to properties. If it shows only your url than it's search engine friendly

    I would check for direct links AND check to see if its pages are SEO friendly (are there any question marks?)

    You can check to see if the sites listed within the directory are showing the directory as a backlink.

    Just cause a directory has pagerank doesn't necessarily mean it is search engine friendly.

    Ok, let me explain what I meant in the post you linked to:

    Some search engines can have a difficult time indexing links that include strange characters such as "&" and "?" etc. By using mod rewrite, you can change those funky links like http://www.directory.com/cat.php?id=234 to something easier for the search engine to handle, like http://www.directory.com/Computers/Internet/Forums.

    If your not sure exactly what mod rewrite is or how it works, just google for "mod rewrite."
