Reading files located on Windows-shares?

I need to read a specific file located on several shared folders on specific
machines on a Windows-based network.
I got a list of machines, which have all shared the folder 'data':
hosts = ['foo1','foo2','bar1','bar2']
In Windows Explorer I'd access these folders by just typing
\\machinename\sharedfolder in the location-field.
Doing something like :
for host in hosts:
print open('\\%s\\data\config.dat', 'r').read()
Doesn't work. How can I work with Windows-shared folders using Python ??
