Will this work for you?

request.servervariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT")

my results are

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

This (from phpBB2 skin) detect PC/Mac and IE/NS:

var clientPC = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase(); // Get client info
var clientVer = parseInt(navigator.appVersion); // Get browser version

var is_ie = ((clientPC.indexOf("msie") != -1) && (clientPC.indexOf("opera") == -1));
var is_nav = ((clientPC.indexOf('mozilla')!=-1) && (clientPC.indexOf('spoofer')==-1)
                && (clientPC.indexOf('compatible') == -1) && (clientPC.indexOf('opera')==-1)
                && (clientPC.indexOf('webtv')==-1) && (clientPC.indexOf('hotjava')==-1));

var is_win = ((clientPC.indexOf("win")!=-1) || (clientPC.indexOf("16bit") != -1));
var is_mac = (clientPC.indexOf("mac")!=-1);

So just test is_ie, is_nav, is_win, is_mac and use location.href = "yourpage.htm" to redirect

oh sorry, I've just read so fast and I saw something 'javascript' :-)
But both have the same approach: read USER_AGENT (here in ASP is request.servervariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT")) then test some specified pieces of text. If you find 'mac' then it's Mac, or 'win' then it's Windows...

ASP version of the script below:

strUA = LCase(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT"))
if (InStr(strUA, "msie") AND NOT InStr(strUA, "opera")) then
     is_ie=true
end if
...
if (InStr(strUA, "mac")) then
     is_mac=true
end if
....

Just forgot: redirect your browser by
Response.Redirect("YourPageIE.asp")
