The system is administered from one computer using the ant tasks - so
all systems have the same configuration, just some property diffs
between them.

I looked at this, but it doesn't seem to give me the information I'm
looking for.  For example:

D:\> net use
New connections will be remembered.

Status       Local     Remote                    Network

OK                     \\ss04\root               Microsoft Windows
Disconnected           \\Ss04\IPC$               Microsoft Windows
The command completed successfully.

Note that it is not giving me the translation of \\ss04\root to the
remote computer's local drive.  I think that "net use" will only give me
the mapping of local computer's drive to the UNC path.  (unless I'm
missing something here)
