Thanks Erik and Diane.

What I was looking for is the resulting string of ${os.name} for Win NT and
Win ME.

example:

	<target name="getlatest">
		<exec executable="COMMAND.COM" os="Windows 98">
			<arg line="/e:4096"/>
			<arg line="/l:1024"/>
			<arg line="/u:255"/>
			<arg line="/c"/>
			<arg line="${ssafe.file}"/>
		</exec>	
		<exec executable="CMD.EXE" os="Windows 2000">
			<arg line="/e:4096"/>
			<arg line="/l:1024"/>
			<arg line="/u:255"/>
			<arg line="/c"/>
			<arg line="${ssafe.file}"/>
		</exec>		
	</target>

Use this to determine the values:

    <echo message="os.name = ${os.name}"/>

If you are using Ant 1.4, have a look at the <condition> task regarding its
O/S "family" capability to group Windows, Mac, Unix, and DOS operating
systems rather than having to specify them explicitly by the os.name value.
