That only hides in explorer. I haven't tried the ZENworks policy, but the
NT policy for hiding all drives in explorer sucks pretty bad. If you have
a "Run..." dialog box prompt you can still bypass that *very*
easily, because you can just type the directory you want to go to or even
just a simple "\" to get the root directory of the drive containing the
winnt directory. Or equivalently "start \" from the command prompt.
I suppose it is useful to some degree though, because it would be hidden
in the win32 "explorer-style" dialog boxes but not the win16 "windows 3.1"
dialog boxes (ie. for open and save, etc).

I would appreciate that... especially if it saves me downloading it from
overseas and costing the university god-knows-how-much.
I can't find it on any of the servers here so I guess no-one in
Engineering is aware of it (?!?).
