I don't know how such a redirect would influence search engine ranking,
but using mod_rewrite would looks like:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
RewriteRule ^(.*)        http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1   [R=301]

(I hope it will survive line wrapping, above instructions are 4 lines)

See: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html for further details.
