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.
