Mapping a drive using NFS

I need to map a drive using NFS to my Windows server from my iSeries. I'd like to write files directly to the mapped directory using Java. What do I need to accomplish this?
I strongly discourage you from using NFS. It is slow and difficult to secure. The alternate method is to use the iSeries SMB support to write directly to NT drive. This page contains the exact method of mapping the NT path to the iSeries.
