[Klug-general] genisoimage and files truncating.

touch "test file"

for file in *" "*; do echo "File: ${file}"; newFile=`echo "${file}" | sed
-e 's/ /_/g'`; echo "New File: ${newFile}"; mv "${file}" "${newFile}"; done
File: test file
New File: test_file

I can't document it now but with luck man pages and google will help. Run
the one line command (which is a loop of multiple commands) in the
directory with files with spaces in. Replaces them with underscore.
