You should be able to do a File > Save Book As, renaming the book file. This 
should rename your generated files to match the book filename.

Subject: Easiest way to create a new book from a template (unstructured FM8)
To: framers at
Date: Monday, January 12, 2009, 2:42 AM

My FM template contains all formats in the book. When I create a new
book I take a chapter file at set it all up from there:

Add front page, toc, chapters, glossary index and rear page. All set up
by using specific headings to call the correct master pages. I set up
the page and chapter numbering from the book and set up the Table of
Contents from the "Set up Table of Contents menu".

Now a Documentation group is going to use my template. They are all new
to Framemaker. Can I set up a "dummy book" that they just copy to
working directory? I see that I can rename files from within the book
and get links working but I cannot rename the book file itself.

Is there an easy way to get the book file renamed and get the generated
files like TOC, Index and Glossary working without having to set them up
from scratch again?

Do you have any other good ideas on how to optimize a template for group
