os.makedirs: difference between nt4 and w2k

Suppose unc_path is a UNC path refering to a non existing
directory on another computer.
os.makedirs( unc_path ) throws an exception if this path
is on a windows 2000 machine but creates the directory if
it is on a win-nt machine.

Is this a feature of win2k, or could I change the setup
of that win2k computer to accept the creation of unc_path?
Could this be done from Python?
(I have administrator privileges on both computers)
