try 'man rename' for more info. It isn't what you think it is....
The error messages look funny to you because it's a perl script.
To change the name of a single file - use mv - e.g. mv Grapg.html Graph.html
To change a bunch of files names in a pattern, use rename - e.g.
rename 's/html/htm/g' *.html would rename all your .html files to .htm
Hey, it's your computer.... isn't it?
