DOn't know of any pure Java way of doing that.
You'll need to use JNI or some other native implementation.

Hey Ralekar

You Need a JNI is that is sure.
But i want to bring you a notice abt something regarding this.

If u still can implement this, but not all OS I mean even in Windows u can do this.

You can Lock your ur devices in 3.2,95,98
I know u cann't do it with Win2000 and not much i know abt NT.

Microsoft has removed a device control in 2000. In order to use this feature. U need to reboot the system to take place. This is special feature in 2000.

I don't know abt NT.
This is for your information
