About 5 years ago, when I worked with a macos9 -based company migrating to
windows, I ran a macintosh utility to rename files. Among the advantages was
the fact that I could add appropriate dot-three extensions based on creator
and file type.
There are several renamers on this page
http://www.macwindows.com/filetran.html --far down on the page you will see
products that are designed to do renamings on an NT Server running Services
Or you can write your own in Apple Script...
