    UNIX Network Tools for Windows

    Is this a viable way to go? I want to be able to access all of my RPMs on the HD of my windows box. NFS would be the way to go? or is there a better/more secure way? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    are you trying to access a windows hdd from linux?
    in that case just build in NTFS/FAT32/WHATEVER support to your kernel

    are you trying to access a windows box from linux across a network?
    samba, you can even build smbfs into your kernel and mount windows shares like you would nfs

    Yep, Samba or NFS is what I had in mind. And I was trying to access a Windows Box from a Linux Box across my LAN.

    smbclient comes with samba, it's like an ftp client to access windows shares.... also check out smbfs, i personally would not fork over $$$ to MS just so you can use NFS.
