How do I create a Passwd and user file for anonymous access for Unix / NFS services

Last Modified: 2012-06-27

I need to create a passwd and a user file.
I know these files are created under unix / linux systems using some siple commands but I do not have any linux or unix environment.
I have a windows 2003 r2 server that hosts some data. I then have a media center that can connect to the network using NFS, so I need to be able to set up NFS file shares on my server and to do this i need a passwd and user file containing an anonymous user and a root user  so that i can map these in services for unix and get my shares up and running.
I would hacve thought there would be a place with a standard file that I could download but i cant find such a place

Please help!

Thanks, I will l,ook through the links.
The media box is like a client, all the data sits on a server and you basically browse to it using nfs, then it plays it over the network
