I am obviously missing something.

I am simple trying to rename some files with long names to a shorter 
format.

Here are a couple of sample file names:  longfilename - 0100.txt, 
longfilename - 01-1.txt

Here is my code - rename.rb:

# Quick Script to rename files

puts 'start'
require 'find'
require 'ftools'
require 'enumerator'

dir1original = 'c:/temp/'

puts 'Here'

Find.find(dir1original) do |path|
   puts 'The current item is ' + path
   if File.file? path
      puts path + ' is a file'
      oldname = path
      newname = path
      newname.sub!('longfilename - 0', '0')
      puts  newname + ' Is the newfile'
      puts "\n\nCheck About to RENAME file"
      File.rename(oldname, newname)
      puts 'Renamed ' + oldname + ' to ' + newname + "\n\n\n"
     end
  end

  puts "\n\n"

When I run it I get the following error (after I get teh Check About to 
RENAME file message:
rename.rb:21:in 'rename': No such file or directory - c:/temp/0101.txt 
or c:/temp/0101.txt <Errno::ENOENT>
     from rename.rb:21
     from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/find.rb:39:in 'find'
     from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/find.rb:38:in 'catch'
     from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/find.rb:38:in 'find'
     from rename.rb:12

My script is named rename.rb and is located on c:
This is on a Windows XP box.

Not sure what I have missed, but I figure it has to be something simple.

Help would be greatly appreciated.
