Using the OS Environment Variable in SMS Installer to Test for NT Workstation

Dana Daugherty posts this SMS Installer script. It keeps Windows 9x installations from installing on Windows NT workstations.

I use this variable to stop installs intended for Win 9x PC in case they accidentally run on NT Workstations. 

In my get system information into variable statement I specified service pack number.  In this case if OS = 0 then that system is not NT. In my site if it's not NT then it's Win 9x. It will only go into my IF Then installation loop if it = 0.

Take a look.
