When I am using a worlist, if I tell it to check through a folder called 'wordlist', will it run through each file within the folder?  Or is there something that it needs to do in order to iterate through each file?
yeah, just specify the folder and it will run through each and every dict, also see https://hashcat.net/wiki/frequently_aske...ctionaries

even the usage info should tell you that this works:
Usage: oclHashcat [options]... hash|hashfile|hccapfile [dictionary|mask|directory]...

The only "problem" as mentioned also on that very same FAQ section is that whenever the dictionaries within the folder have the same words, work will need to be redone. so sometimes (or most of the times?!) it makes sense to have a well-prepared, sorted and uniqued wordlist.
