I would like to offer an appology for the off topic
Just a side note about a free NFS client for Windows:
"Microsoft's Windows Services for UNIX Now Available
Free of Charge"
Microsoft SFU is made by Interix.com, which in turn is
based on OpenBSD. If I am not mistaken, they do have
an NFS client.
"Client for NFS – The Windows NFS client component of
SFUv3. Client for NFS allows the machine on which it
is installed to access and use NFS resources anywhere
on the network"
