    This works best with Samba. Create the share on the Windows machine if you want to connect to that and on the Linux machine where you want to connect to. There are tons of walk-throughs, but if you can't find one, let me know and I will walk you through.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    In order to mount a Linux/Unix NFS share on Windows, you need to install the Windows SFU (Services For Unix). That includes both client and server NFS tools. As far as I know, this is a free install that you can find on the Microsoft web site.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
