iTunes import question

When I import a folder of songs into iTunes, the order gets all messed up.

For instance, in folder eBook, I have:

1-01 part1.mp3
1-02 part2.mp3
1-03 part3.mp3

Then in iTunes the names get messed up as well as the order.

You can either manually add the track listing, by right clicking, or you can specify the songs are part of a compilation, which forces itunes to keep the track listing.

iTunes doesn't pay any attention to the file names.  It sorts the songs based on the embedded tags.  If you want the songs to sort the way you want,  then you could edit the tags appropriately prior to importing the songs into iTunes.

So before I import the songs, how would I edit the tags?
