I was in limewire, and i noticed if you downloaded a file with the same name as a file you were already downloading or had downloaded, it gave you the option to either overwrite the file, or rename the file you want to download.

I'm running leopard, and I was wondering if there was a script, plugin, program, etc. that allowed you to do this with finder. for example, say i had a picture with the name "untitled", and i wanted to move it to a folder that already had a file with the name untitled in it. Normally, finder would ask if you wanted to overwrite the file, or cancel. I was wondering if there were any way the options could be overwrite the file, rename the file, and cancel.

any help with this would be great. thanks
