It is local Ext2 partition system accessible through on the same HDD as primary system partition. But there is definitely issue with difference between drives.

There is no problem if the package is executed from the NTFS system drive - permissions asked as expected, no errors. On the Ext2 partition VLC and other installers that require elevated privileges fail. I do not remember any such problems last year, but it just can be that most applications on this drive are not windows specific or do not require elevated privileges.

I still doesn't explain why this drive is threatened as "network". It would be nice to see how Windows treats other partition types - FAT32 or FAT16.
