mathematica 4.0, base forms

does anyone know how to extend Mathematica 4.0's
capabilities of calculating in 36 numerical bases to
any number base beyond? In general the numbers 0-9 and
letters a-z yield 36 numerical expressions and that's
it. To move beyond, instead of attributing 'a' to 10,
'b' to 11 and so on, it should be possible to assign
these decimal expressions directly to enable quick
conversion of any given number into any number base in
question, let's say base 37,38,52 etc.
Any assistance is highly appreciated. Thank you all.
