You can also use PC-NetLink softwate provided by Sun.
It allows Sun Server to emulate a Windows-NT server where you can share Sun directories with Windows-NT server as well as Windows clients to store DOS / Windows32 executables.

It is free when you buy a Sun Server at least when our company bought it.
