It's not particularly easy since Windows does not support NIS and NFS out of the box AFAIK -- you'll probably need to look into Windoes Services For UNIX (SFU).

Your next best bet is to install Samba and use that for SMB file sharing, which Windows understands.

In fact, you might have to. Going by Microsoft's web site you might have to, since Services for Unix claims to not support Windows Vista. (Feel free to prove me wrong)
