This mapping question was asked in July of 2000 and I saved a couple
of the postings.  These allowed me to find the relevant thread on
Yahoo Groups.  (I really miss DejaNews.  I can't wait for Google to
bring the entrie archive back online)
Anyway here is the thread.

As far as copying files, check out the shutil module in the standard
library.

Hope this helps.
