As a heuristic I would call GetVolumeInformation and use FS_CASE_SENSITIVE.
Anyone configuring a windows machine (it is possible) to be case 
sensitive is exploring the level of trouble that can result.
It is very unusual to configure a case insensitive file system on 
Unix/Linux. Caveats: FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, CDFS, samba client file systems 
on the Linux box.
