User's name changed. In AD I changed the name and the changed the user share to Z:\servername\users\newusername. Renamed old username share to new name.
Users workstation is XP and cannot edit the properties of My Documents. How can I change the properties so that it looks for the renamed user share.

You went too far too quickly, rename the old share back to what it was and let it create the new share and move things over by itself.
