You can go to a command prompt and type "net use" to get a list of drive letters and mappings. These could be NAS, SAN etc but all other drives not listed should be local. Also, you can go to disk managemet to find out how the local drives are setup.
 I hope this is what you were looking for....

A SAN disk is a local disk as long as it is accessed via iSCSI or FC connection.
diskmgmt properties will tell you where the disk is from.
Usually, SAN allocated disks use a Special tool on the system to manage the path to the resource. i.e. EMC has PowerPATH, I think similar mechanisms exist for HItachi, IBM, HP, SUN SANS.

Check the driver section for the drive. Usually SAN allocated drive will be the last unless you have your system configured to boot using disks/LUNs allocated on the SAN.
