bulk rename files using automater

We have a lot (really) of randomly scattered files with forward slashes in the folder names. Since we are now moving to a new server we would like to use automater to rename the root folders along with all the sub folders .... the problem we have is that automater seems to only want to rename the folders we have added to the finder items list and not the sub folders.

question: can automater be set to rename not only the item in the finder list but its sub folders as well?

Thanks

See http://automatorworld.com/archives/batch-rename/ and comment #44

Otherwise I'd probably do this with Applescript or even more likely a shell script.
