Getting an overview if all available driveletters on NT

Ok,

here's the complete story. I used win32api.GetLogicalDriveStrings() to get a list of
all available drives, and then I used win32file.GetDriveType(i) to find out the type
of the drives. This is what I found:

- 2 -> floppy
- 3 -> fixed hard drive or subst'd drive
- 4 -> mapped network drive
- 5 -> cd-rom drive

Kind regards,

umm.  didn't the original poster ask for a way to
tell ordinary drives from network drives?  that's
exactly what GetDriveType does...
