in thread Win32::TieRegistry and remote machines

This may be a bit off... but I was wondering, why not use Win32 module? It has the nice Win32::IsWinNT() and Win32::IsWin95(). I'm making a bit of assumption that Win32::IsWin95() would work with Win98 as well. I'm not sure. Anyways, just a suggestion - it may not fit your needs.

Good Luck!

Update: usual..assumption.. bad bad! Thanks tye!

    Because those only tell you about the local computer. The problem was to determine if a remote computer is running Win9x.
