Welcome. There is no need to be afraid of us---we don't bite ;-).

One thing you could try is mounting the partition manually with 'mount
/dev/hda<n> /<mountpoint> -t vfat' to make sure the vfat driver and not the
plain fat driver is used. (Sometime fstab does funny things.)

Other that that, renaming the files under Linux need not be a manual
operation. Try this shell loop:

	for a in oldname_1:newname_1 oldname_2:newname_2 .. oldname_n:newname_n
		oldname=`echo $a | cut -f1 -d:`
		newname=`echo $a | cut -f2 -d:`
		mv $oldname $newname

You could also try tarring the file under linux, then extracting under
windows using tar for windows. But that's a beastly solution.

The aforementioned website linmodems.org is a central repository of
Winmodem-on-Linux knowledge.
