Thanks for the reply Roger,

Since will put this on my web site for general use, I don't want users 
to have to install additional software.

I'll try win32com.client.Dispatch('Wbemscripting.Swbemlocator') see what 
that does.

As a last resort, I use a registry key as a run status varable.  Not my 
first choice, but I think it will work for all win9x systems.
