merging PDF files with drag & drop - Adobe Acrobat Windows

OK in Acrobat 5 I could merge large numbers of separate PDF files to a single PDF by opening the first file in Acrobat, going to windows explorer & selecting the other files in the right order and dragging the file list into the thumbnails. Easy Now Acrobat 6 always adds the file in the wrong order, regardless of how they are selected in explorer. Very clever & very frustrating. Since I don't want to add 20-odd files one at a time, can anyone suggest a workround or give me a clue? Thanks...
