I realize that but since thy are enabling client by default now I'm 
guessing they are going to be making it easier
to enable the server portion soon. So even though there may not be a lot 
of people serving NFS from windows
servers now, there may be soon. :-)

I believe I just did "net use * \\server\share" and when CIFS wasn't 
running it automatically connected with NFS. I'm guessing
it would be the same from Explorer if you used the UNC path.

It has been a while and I now have NFS client disabled so I don't 
"accidentally" connect with NFS when I meant to connect
with CIFS.
