No.  It's NT 4.0, sp4 (I think), basically as it came from Gateway.  And
it'll be gone as soon as the new ahc driver is integrated, and I can move
netbsd off of the old IDE, which is why I'm not too concerned.  I just wanted
to feed back the info in case the mount_ntfs maintainers would find it useful.

The poor P5/233 on the other side of the desk is the machine that's gonna get
saddled with Win2K :)
