Map remote sftp directory in windows

I have 2 questions. What's the best way to:

1. map a directory on a remote web server as a local drive using ssh/sftp under windows xp? The remote server runs red hat linux. If I need to use a third party tool can you recommend a good freeware app that is low on system resource requirement?

2. do the above but on a windows 2003 server. So we map the remote folder (unix server) as a drive on the local network windows server, so that the drive becomes available to all clients in the local network.

Thank you

Are you running Samba on the  Red Hat box?
