eli290,

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but, the following registry key contains the MRU list related to network drives:  

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Map Network Drive MRU

Fire up RegEdit, browse to the above key and (carefully) delete the appropriate entries - the MRU list contains the last 26 or so entries with the 'MRUList' key itself specifying the order or the list..

Hope that helps..
