rhythmbox stores album art in ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/covers/${artist}\ -\ 
${album}.jpg -- at least here it does ;). So what immediately comes to mind 
(for me, at least) would be a simple bash script along the lines of

for artist in */
   for album in */
      cp "$artist/$album/$album.jpg" "~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/covers/${artist}\ -\ 

let me know if that works for you. (you could even make it a one-liner -- i 
like those.)


I stick with Gentoo because it is home. Other distros are like living in 
hotels -- comfortable initially, but ultimately confining.
