Possible to bulk-convert bmps into jpegs?

Hi, I've recently modified about a hundred game bitmaps to make them look better, but I don't have the equipment to save them onto a CD, so I'll have to use floppies.
But flops don't have the capacity to absorb the bmp's which means I've got to convert each one into a jpeg first because jpegs take up less space.
I can do it easily enough with Irfanview, but it'll take a l-o-n-g time to convert them one by one.
Question - is there a way I can convert all 100 bmps into jpegs in bulk in just a few seconds with just a few mouse clicks?
Thanks

PS - why do I want to save them to flops? - As backups ;)

Okay i'll go check out "batch capacity", send out search parties if I don't return ;)

File/Batch conversion click on the folder where your images are saved and click 'ADD ALL' tab.

Okay thanks guys, panics over, somebody kill that klaxon ;)
The batch conversion went as smooth as silk, I must have pressed all the rght buttons.
Now if only I had the same success with women..

Just converted 600 bmp files to jpg thanks to this posting. Was facing days of work otherwise.

Cheers
