how to mount NFS drive from Window XP to Solaris 10?

Is there a free tool that will allow me to mount an NFS network drive from a Window XP computer onto a Solaris 10 x86 system? So when this is done, I would have a mapped network drive on my Windows XP system, say network drive N, that is mounted onto the directory /export/home/data on my Solaris 10 x86 server.

If it's not free, what software is low-cost and efficient? Thanks.
