Configure a samba server on Linux and share the mounted filesystem and then map than in widowns.

If you need step by step for the same. Please update.

BTW, why do you need the same, if you tell us the reason, we may suggest some different easy solution.

We are using novel directory in our network. But the client PCs are still in widows. We have some application sitting in the Linux logical volume in the Linux server which need to be accessed by windows PCs.

Samba share can be accessible in windows same as we access windows share in windows, when you map a share in windows you just need to check the button "Reconnect on logon".

Once you create a samba share on linux then run go on the windows machine and either go to start---> run---> \\ip address of linux box\samba share name

or go to the my computer----> click on tools---> click on map network drive---> then select the drive letter which you want to assign and enter the path.
