Copy them all to a folder on your hard drive.
Make a screen printout of the folder so you'll have the names.

In DOS, use the copy /b command to combine the files.

Example:  Say the first file's name is february.txt
Second file name is march.txt, third file is april.txt

At prompt   c:copy /b february.txt+march.txt+april.txt

Etc.  Make sure to be in the subdirectory where these files are before adding files.

Are you willing to go third-party on this?  You can probably find the best solution at www.slipstick.com
You may also be able to find a shareware solution at www.simtel.net
