I have made and nfs share on a redhat box; put it in export file, ran exportfs.
this file is shared only with the ip address of my windows server.
I have nfs role loaded on my windows server but don't know how to get the windows box to see the nfs share.
does anyone know of a good explanation of how to do this? have the microsoft step by step guide which seems to tell me nothing.

Similar to net use, you would use mount //unixbox/share drive_letter

The other option if available to you is to setup samba on the unix system and then you will be able to access the share as net use drive_letter: \\unixbox\sharename
as well as see the share through network neighborhood.
