I have seen example of :

If your images are all in one folder you can disallow that folder.

Wildcards are an extension supported by Google (see their "Webmaster Info" document) but it's not a part of the robots.txt standard - the standard says the value is interpreted as a full or partial path.

Also to be on the safe side you should write Disallow: instead of disallow:

Thanks, guess I am going to bite the bullet and move
all of the images over to an image folder.
