Take a look at Bulk Rename Utility It's free, does not require installation and does just about everything possible where renaming files is concerned.

This has to at least be a competitor for most crammed UI I've seen but it did the job, thanks! – RCIX May 19 '10 at 8:57

ReNamer is a powerful utility to batch rename files and folders in Windows. There is also a pretty complete guide for it.

With ReNamer you can create rules that are applied (after a preview) to all selected files.
