How to use Client for NFS on Windows Vista?

I've installed "Client for NFS" on my 32-bit Windows Vista Ultimate. However, I can't find it in the start menu, and can't find any documentation on how to use it.

"From Windows 7, I can use the mount command:

mount host:/folder x:

where folder represents the full path from root to the NFS shared folder."

"When I had installed Windows Services for UNIX Version 3.5 I had the same idea. Reading the previous post I also checked the server at the network in Windows Explorer by typing in \servername

Only the Samba shares (a Linux server in my case) showed up here. I noticed however that below My Network Places, a new item showed up named NFS Network. Browsing that I could see (and map) my NFS shares."
