Help with awk or sed.

Hi, I am stuck on the following issue with awk and need help. I currently have data that looks like this:

Directory of /home/admin/slap/test

06/09/2009 08:15 AM 954,880 bin.fla
02/09/2009 09:48 AM 173,905 bin.swf
03/23/2009 11:04 AM 2,168 bin.xml
06/09/2009 08:15 AM 830,464 dnd.fla
02/05/2009 12:47 PM 175,001 dnd.swf
02/05/2009 11:13 AM 1,835 dnd.xml
06/09/2009 08:15 AM 755,712 mcq.fla
06/09/2009 08:15 AM 46,843 mcq.swf
06/09/2009 08:15 AM 2,706 mcq.xml

Directory of /home/admin/slap/test2

06/09/2009 08:16 AM 954,880 bin.fla2
02/09/2009 09:47 AM 173,905 bin.swf2
03/23/2009 11:04 AM 2,168 bin.xml2
06/09/2009 08:17 AM 830,464 dnd.fla2
02/05/2009 12:48 PM 175,001 dnd.swf2
02/05/2009 11:10 AM 1,835 dnd.xml2
06/09/2009 08:16 AM 755,712 mcq.fla2
06/09/2009 08:14 AM 46,843 mcq.swf2
06/09/2009 08:12 AM 2,706 mcq.xml2

I need to somehow run through this file and extract out "Directory of /home/admin/slap/test" and append it to each file in the 5th field.

So the end result would be something like:

Directory of /home/admin/slap/test/bin.fla
Directory of /home/admin/slap/test/bin.swf
Directory of /home/admin/slap/test/bin.xml

for each block of text. So the next block would be

Directory of /home/admin/slap/test2/bin.fla2
Directory of /home/admin/slap/test2/bin.swf2
Directory of /home/admin/slap/test2/bin.xml2

Not sure if awk would be the right tool or if this is even possible. Any advice would be great. This was a originally a directory list of all files and we need to somehow reconstruct back to a full directory listing.
