I am afraid all the question you have asked are very OS specific and
Ruby has no built-ins to do these things directly. Your best bet is to
find a library on RAA or rubyforge.org that do what you ask. Or to find
the appropriate system calls and call them from within ruby with OLE or
rubydl.

It is all very vague, but I have to admit I don't really know on top of
my head how to solve your problem.

Hope this help,
Guillaume.
