    First of af all NFS server has a lot of advantages over a samba based server. But the most important at least in my case is the file transfer speed.
    while in samba will take about, 1 hour to transfer 5GB
    in NFS will only take 10 minutes.
    Instruction on how to make windows XP have read/write acces to a unix based NFS server.

    Also you can get Putty and acces via ssh any linux server from windows and create all the configuration files necessary
    NOTE: that you have to install ssh server support in the server otherwise it will not give you access trhough putty.

    Creating a NFS network form all linux computers is easier, unless you come from windows. Because of the logical connection drives, fstab modifications, and console commands needed. On the other hand windows nfs client can be created without much hassle, by installing
    unix support for windows.

    First you have to go here

    and download the unix support package fro windows

    And this wiki on Gentoo access to nfs shares helped a lot

    I'm usung Ubuntu and still most of the information is relevant.
    Good Luck!
