In the Windows NT/2K environment, you will have
to extract each component "token" of the path
yourself - given the entire path name.

To do so, you may wish to utilize FSRTL functions
such as the following:

(a) FsRtlDissectName()
(b) FsRtlDoesNameContainWildCards()
(c) FsRtlIsNameInExpression()
(d) FsRtlAreNamesEqual()

and others ...

Subject: [ntfsd] path parsing

I am at the begining of trying to port a W9x FSD to NT.
At this point I am just trying to match up features and
functionality between the two environements.

This FSD has somewhat unusual directory semantics. Under
W9x the path parsing and name matching features are a big
help since I have to work with individual path components.

I assume that NT has similar primitives but I am having
trouble finding them...
