Rename My Documents for user

I have a user name that I must rename in AD (2008).  In AD I understand how to rename, and have user sign on to XP with new username.

This part works, but the Documents and Settings still shows old name.  Is there a means to rename the old name to the new name, without causing a lot a grief?

Not without a lot of grief.  You could backup their files, remove the profile and create a new one then copy back the files.  That's the grief.

Though you are changing the names but the SID mapped to user profile will not change
So if its about one user I would have created a new user ID and then migrate the profile
