Checking processes running under Windows

Hello all! I'm trying to write a script that needs to check which processes
are running under Windows (XP Pro, Home, whatever). The method I'm using is:

>>> process_list = os.popen('TASKLIST').read()

However, XP Home doesn't have the tasklist.exe tool so, this is kind of
useless in that OS. Do you have any other methods I can use for this?
