As I wrote, I wasn't able to set up NFS on the W2k8 server and I doubt 
it's still possible. For Samba or CIFS, the file server does the mapping.

Where is the binary located? It must be on a local disk, default is in 
the Windows directory.
If you log in to the host as the _local_ Administrator and open a 
"Command Prompt" window and enter
C:\> cd Windows
C:\Windows> SGE_Helper_Service.exe -install

What does it print?

/net is not a NFS mounter, it's the general network mounter. It makes 
all network shares accessible the "network" folder of the Windows 
Explorer shows.

The newest documentation has a chapter for SUA installation where it 
also describes how Samba/CIFS shares can be used. Probably I have to 
make clearer that this section applies for Windows 2k8 Server.
