If you have any file shares that Windows can reach (SMB, NFS, etc.), you can
also perform network scans of the Linux machine from a Windows AV product
server/workstation.

This is bad advice.  Linus is *not* immune to viruses.  There just
aren't as many written for Linux.  Ever heard of the Slapper worm?

Well, Linux, as such, doesn't need AV protection because it's pretty
much immune.  But if you're running a mail server for Windoze boxes, you
can use ClamAntiVirus,
