Thank you to everyone who has helped me with my issue.  I just wanted to post
the solution to the problem for others who may have a similar question.

to batch gdal_translate: (here specifically we are converting sids into

1.  in a txt file wihtin the same directory as the sids,  insert:

for %%f in (*.sid) do gdal_translate -of JPEG %%f %%f.jpg

(this will only convert sids to jpgs within the current directory of the bat
file.  to create do it recursively insert /r, for /r %g in (*.sid)...etc. )

2.  save extention as .bat

3.  within FWTools terminal > call filename.bat 

thats all there is to it.

Thanks again.
