You can rename it like a normal folder. Just select the folder, hit F2 and name whatever you want.

Is there a way to automate this via login script?

I want to avoid VBscripts altogether. If there is no way to do it via just a batch file, then I'd probably have skip this for now. But thanks for the links, - I'll keep them handy.

I don't think you can rename mapped drives via batch. You'll have to go with VBS for this one.
