Assuming you mean:

1) nfs server running on linux
2) in window, you want to map a drive by mapping to the a nfs mountpoint of linux

If so, you need to have a nfs client installed in windows. google 'nfs client window' will give you some commerical product as such.

Just curious, is there a reason to use nfs instead of smb to share between
your windows XP and Linux ?

Well, rosariowong, since your first post is not very clear about it, I therefore make this assumption.

It is entirely possible that, given a right software is installed, you can map, says z:, to a nfs mount in another machine, much like a window share. But they are usually commerial product. I am not aware of a OSS implementation of such.

You have to make up your mind what exactly you are looking after.


keefaz, I really do not know the answer to the questions. But presumably some admin, in a predominately unix shop, may prefer to use nfs only to avoid 1) keep track of another set of mountpounts in smb and 2) potential file locking issue if nfs and samba export the same directory.

With slackware it is not so hard, the smb.conf is well commented, you could just
try some commented examples from it.

And there is nothing to do in the windows XP machine, it should just work
