    There was once a (Perl IIRC) Script that extracted this information from
    the registry files, from a mounted (V)FAT partition. I think it was
    mentioned on Freshmeat (a year ago, or something).

    You might want to check out freshmeat / deja / .. if this still lives, that
    would probably be a better alternative (?).
