"On the Windows side, you mount an NFS export much like any other 
network share, by issuing a command such as

mount [options] //nfs-server-unc-name/share-name [drive letter]

This is assuming, of course, that you’ve installed Client Services for 
NFS under Windows. NFS support is one of those optional packages that is 
available via the Add/Remove Software wizard in the Control Panel."

But only Ultimate and Enterprise apparently...
