Simple Win2K admin question

I have some files shared under \\server1\files\ which I have moved to \\server2\files\. How do I point \\server2\files\ to \\server1\files\ so that user can still access the files by typing the original path? Thanks for all your help.

You should be able to do this with the Distributed File System service/Administrator tool.
