I have a server named LufkinData1  and another server named SanData1  
they are connected with an OC3
I want my San Users to be able to use the Public folder which is on LufkinData1. But it look like the folder is on SanData1

Example:
They navigate to \\SanData1\Public\HRDocuments the Public folder will redirect them to \\LufkinData1\Public\HRDocuments.

This is a highly critical project so please any answers ASAP would be appreciated.

What is the OS's on the servers?

You could mount the share from LufkinData1 as a folder in the shared folder on SanData1. When they open 'HRDocuments' folder it will look at LufkinData1 for the data.

Have you tried DFS ??

You can point to one folder, and , Transparently to the users, they are connected to another that you define !

Create a shortcut to the folder on SanData1 that points to the folder on LufkinData1.  Share the shortcut.

Ok.  I've got a couple of them set up that way, but maybe I missed something in your requirements.

The program looks for M:\somefolder\public\
I need on SanData1 to have the somefolder and then public be mapped somewhere else.

It's definitely DFS that you want for that.
