I've never actually done this, but I read about it because it is something
I want to do, at least temporarily, as I migrate from Windows to FreeBSD.
(Ironically all the Microsft documentation on the subject assumes you are
migrating the other way!) However, I think you need to search Microsoft's
site, and look up how to install their 'Client for NFS' (or 'Gateway for
NFS' depending on your network)
