mapped network drives naming issue

I have recently migrated from a windows 2000 server to SBS 2003.  In the process I did a backup of all my data folders and restored them to the new server.  After remapping all network drives for users, the new mapped network drives still state that they are connected to the old server on the network drive properties but in fact they are connected to the new server.  

eg: Admin on 'Server' (M:) reconnedted to Admin on 'SBSserver' still shows in my computer as Admin on 'Server' (M:) but connects to the new server.

It is connecting to the correct server as the shares are no longer available on the old server.  It is just confusing to users and I would like to correct it.

Add the Net use command to delete the old mappings to your login script:

If exist f: net use f: /delete /y - do this for each drive and insert before the new mappings command.

What do you mean by "migrated from a windows 2000 server to SBS 2003"?  How exactly did you "migrate"?
