Do you want to

  a) access Linux programs running on a Linux server from
     the NT clients, or
  b) run Linux applications locally on the NT clients
     themselves?

If the answer is

  a) it depends on what kind of applications you are trying
     to access:
       - text terminal based: log onto the Linux server
         with the telnet that's part of Windows NT
       - graphical X Window programs: you'll need an
         X server running on the NT machines like Exceed
         or the free Cygwin/XF86 program

  b) there is a program called VMWare available for
     Windows NT which emulates a complete PC with virtual
     hard disks. You can boot Linux inside such a virtual
     PC and access the files on NTFS file systems via a
     virtual Network.

Hope this helps
