NFS on Windows Home Server

Does someone know if NFS services can be installed on a Windows Home Server? I want to use one of those cute and cheap HP NAS devices to save data off-site and use ShadowProtect to create bootable VMDK images. For that I need an ESX server to be able to read files on my WHS.

I have found that VMware to Windows NFS is a little shakey... i had some phantom unmount issues that never were resolved.

Thanks Thorrsson. Just what I needed. I am not going to rely on the NFS share for operational porposes, just need a "quick" mount from ESX to prove a DR solution. I think the suggestion you have given me is perfect.
