how-to setup Win 2008R2 as NFS server

Sometimes it is helpful to set up windows as a NFS server to transfer files between a windows and Linux machine. This is especially useful when setting up a RHEV (2.2 not relevant any more with 3.0) environment and you do not have a NFS server or extra Linux box available for your ISO or Export domain.
