Why? why?!

A Web application has no access to the client machine. Don't you think this is very good? Who would trust any Web applications if such things were possible? Ever though about such thing as security?

You can't, without writing and loading an ActiveX control (or similar) onto the client and executing it there. Browsers do not have any access to that kind of information for security reasons. Do note that most PC's do not execute ActiveX controls without asking for permission first, and most users will refuse permission.
