Re: [PATCH] for statfs/df under Win9x problem

Yes, I did try it with UNCs, and it works fine.  I was having a 
problem with the GetDiskFreeSpace() working correctly
with UNC's, but GetDiskFreeSpaceEx() works great.
Unfortunately, I can't test all possible combinations...  My
test environments consist of a Lan with Athlon/WinME, 
AMD K6-3+/WinME and AMD K6-3+/Debian 2.2 / SMB.
My other environment is a Lan with Intel P-II/Win2K,
P-II / OS/2, and lots of different NT/OS/2 boxes, and a
Novell server.  But I don't have any WinMe/NT Combinations.

I will follow up on the rights assignment document.  I guess that
will put this on hold for now...

And I will fix the formatting issues when I re-submit the patch,
after I get the assignment taken care of.
