Computer name change on Windows SBS 2003

I'm installing Windows SBS 2003.  I changed the computer name after installation, and now I'm having problems with the CEICW.  The previous name (OLD_NAME) is still resident when I open the Exchange System manager, but the NEW_NAME seems to have taken root elsewhere.  When I run CEICW, step 1 (Network setup) completes successfully, step 2 (Firewall) completes successfully, but step 3 (configure email) fails.  I'm guessing it's because of this Computer name conflict.

How do I go get Exchange to recognize the new name?  Is there a wizard I can use?

I take it you are using this as a Domain Controller?

Well, at least I didn't get too far along with deployment anyway.

Another few hours of computer babysitting coming my way :)
