How to change some SBS specific settings

Hi,
We are planning for a migration to a very large network Server 2003 and I need to prepare my Small Business Server.
We have some company specific folders on the server that I will move to another server that we will have inhouse. The AD and Exchange will move out to the VERY large network.
The structure is
\\file001\company\secondlevel1
 \\file001\company\secondlevel2
\\file001\company\secondlevel3
and so on.
What would be the best way. Should I map by Net Use to company or should I map up every Seconlevel
If I map up the secondlevel I would get about 10 mapped drives on the clients. Would that be good?

Thanks

Hello -
It sounds like you perhaps have a member server in-house? The SBS functions (other than file server) will be handled offsite on the larger network, correct?  Sounds like a merger.

Basically, your question is should you have a bunch of mapped drives or one.

I would suggest one.  Do we know if there are going to be additional file shares created when the users connect to the larger network?  If so, you probably don't want to overload users with 15+ share mappings.
