I'm a bit irritated about that.  The only thing to do is to load
the GetVolumePathName function dynamically and if that doesn't
work, use a simple string function which cuts the path after either
X:\ or \\server\share.  Just to dismiss NT4 instead of implementing
these 10 lines of code is a bit strange, isn't it?
