Question NFS: Linux Server / Windows Client

I currently have a NFS running smoothly on several linux boxes. Although, I have added a Windoze box to my network. Where can I find information in regards to mounting NFS shares on the Windoze machine? I have seen several posts regarding this question, but I have yet to find an answer worth noting. Most replies suggest using 3rd party software on the Windoze machine, but I feel this is not the only route. I have seen and installed Client for NFS Windoze on my Windoze box (a module distributed by Microsoft). Although, I'll be damned if they tell you how to use/configure it! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks In Advance,

The most popular method is to run Samba. It will make your fileserver provide the shares based on the Windows sharing protocol.
