If you're able to install cookbook recipes, take a look at
<http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/MultiUpload> which I crafted for
just this purpose.

You can just copy them into place. You don't need to refer to an
attachment on a page for PmWiki to see it, it just needs to be in the
right directory. To see the attachments related to a page -- ie. the
files in the uploads directory for that page -- add '?action=upload'
to the end of the page's address.
