Hi,  I need to connect to a Linux nfs share from a 64 bit Windows XP Professional desktop.  I tried to install Windows Services for UNIX 3.5 but it won't install on non-x86 platform.   Any suggestion?
Thanks.

http://www.labtam-inc.com/index.php?act=download_nfsclx64 has worked for me.  This is an RC2 release, but the only one that I could find that supports 64-bit XP and Vista.

Samba was my first candidate, but I could only squeeze 30 MB/s out of samba while iperf reported 110MB/s bandwidth and FTP achieved 85 MB/s.  I need better results.
