Naming - Potential problem upgrading NT to 2003

Thanks for any Info.

5 years ago when I named my NT server I used an underscore in the name "_".
Now I want to upgrade this Server to 2003 which seems to likes dashes but not underscores.
So now I can change the name and upgrade. Which will really make me a hated person since we have a lot of mapped folders and linked AutoCAD files.
Any other of you brilliant people out there have any ideas?
Don't say write a script! Mapped folders sure, Linked ACAD files NO WAY!
Who would have thunk it?

This has nothing to do with dotnet programming. Anyways, I remember from a
few years ago that you could add a NETBIOS alias to a machine. Here's a
link that describes it. No idea if it works with 2003.

Yeah my bad on the post location (probably why I could not find again it until now)
I am not used to the new format of these pages yet.
I will post this where it belongs (If I can find it)
Thanks
