Rename a bunch of directories

Does anyone know a program or a script to rename a bunch of directories? I tried searching these forums, but all I found were programs and scripts to rename files like jpgs and stuff. I tried modifying some of the scripts I found, to work with directories, but I didn't have much luck. I just need to rename a bunch of directories so they're like: dir001, dir002, etc. Thanks.
