how to check NLB Cluster

I have some remote servers(Windows 2003) that are part of NLB cluster. I need to check whether they are all using a shared storage disk or each server uses its own local disk.
I have a remote access to each computer through RDP.

any idea on how to check this remotely?

    I am not at my lab today to check, but I think the dmdiag tool that comes with Support Tools (downloadable and also on the install CD) will give you the info you are looking for.  Here is an overview of the tool:

    An NLB cluster does neither use nor support shared storage. In other words: if this is indeed an NLB cluster, then shared storage is not used.
    Only MSCS supports/requires shared storage.
