[svlug] re-ordering entries in FAT directories

Do anyone know of a tool that will take all the entries in a FAT directory
(although in theory the same program depending on the algorithm would work
on ext2 too)
The goal is as follows:
I have a certain number of mp3s that were mass-uploaded to an IDE drive. The
copy program just did a readdir and copied the files in random order. The
player unfortunately doesn't sort by filename when it plays, so the play
order is random too, which works very badly for albums where order matters.
Is there a program that can recurse through directories, take all the
entries and re-sort them (probably by copying all the files to a temp
filename in the order they need to be in the directory, and then renaming
"A mouse is a device used to point at the xterm you want to type in" - A.S.R.
