    Is there a way to select all the files I want to rename and then hit a button the OS will rename them all in sequence for me such as: file 1, file 2, file 3..... etc? Windows XP does this....:eek:

    Seconded! I use Name Mangler as well. Very good utility.

    If you want to just rename sequentially, Automator is the way to go. Though NameMangler looks good.
