Rename large number of files

I need some help with a script to run on Solaris 10.  
I have approximetly 1000 files that are named myIMG.bmp.1 all the way to myIMG.bmp.1006.

I need to rename them all.

What I would like is someone to be able to rename for example myIMG.bmp.1 to 1.bmp.  

IMPORTANT
Also there are other files in the directory I don't want to rename any that do not end in a number.

This will generate a script that will do it for you:

 ls myIMG.bmp.*|awk '{print "mv " $1 " " $1}'|sed 's/myIMG.bmp.//2;s/$/.bmp/g'


And something similar could also be run through find.



Good Luck,

Why use two, when one will do?   :~}
