The ones hard to tell apart (W2K, XP, NT4+LFN) might be helped by the
two values above, but I've also seen some differences based on if a
drive is FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS - so we would need lots of testing to
figure out what to do with this...  It might be different based on if
you are an administrator or not (I've seen some cases but haven't
tracked them all down).

An interesting thought
