I know that GFI LANguard can determine the difference between XP and 2000 machines. I believe that it will detect 95/98/ME too. The biggest problem is that it is expensive. They do, however, offer a demo version that will let you scan up to 25 machines at a time. Take a look at www.gfi.com

Subject: Win95 detection

I have been given the task to scan for hosts that are running Windows 95
the network. I have tried scanning with Nmap and Nessus, however they
distinguish the hosts between 95/98/ME. I was wondering if anyone has
across a tool that is able to detect Win95 hosts on the network.

Thanks for your help.
