Enable Samba, that's what it's for. Share out the one folder on the Linux server, and have as many Windows boxes as you want map to it.

You do need samba but the question was with a single mount point. Although I have never tried this you should be able to use unionfs.

I read it as he had one mount-point in Linux, and wanted multiple windows boxes to mount to it. But given how the question is put, who knows?

True. The question is vague.
