There is a way to use NFS over Windows.
Microsoft released the SFU pack (services for Unix) freely (!).
You can find there a NFS client and server.
If you are in a LAN you better use a W2k/XP/2k+3 server using Kerberos V.5
to be sure that nobody (until now) can retrieve the passwords using hash
tables on a rainbow crack.
If your server must be a Linux then use SAMBA its safer to configure.
