Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Services for Unix is free and can be obtained from the Microsoft website aslong as you have Windows 2000 or XP Professional. You do need to sign up for a .net passport however, though this is free to do.
When installing SFU you only need the nfs client, everything else can be left uninstalled, unless of course you want those bits and pieces of software.
Other than that, NFS clients for Windows are a bit thin on the ground and what there is charge substantial amounts for a license
tataros3: it is fine to point out other's mistakes when you are providing an answer, eg "there exists such a product that might help you, by the way there is such a thing wrong with your post" but to go around pointing out mistakes others have made and having nothing constructive towards the problem like you have done can be considered trolling. You didn't even suggest why this wasn't the appropriate forum until the OP challenged you.

I did not know that. When I go thet CD, I thought it was for like a 90 day trial. I just Thought you had to buy it then.
Oh no, when you go to the download page it says you can register to download, thats when you need to have or make a .net passport, they also want your name and address but I always put n/a for them.
I don't think it says it is only for 2000 or XP but the installer bails of you don't have one of those two OSs. If you search on google there is a hack to disable the OS checking but I haven't tried it.
You also have to either set up a NIS server or copy /etc/passwd and /etc/group to each of the windows' machines. I have always found it easier to use samba for windows to unix or windows to windows and NFS for unix to unix
The reason there are few NFS windows clients may be due to the fact Microsoft offer a freely available solution or most are happy with samba
