Since the link is "dead" (forbidden, permissions) I can only assume you want to transform your Windows into a Mac OS X look.

But thanks anyway...
First, it would help to know which version of Windows you're talking about. Although there are some themes available to change the look of your entire Windows installation to mimic the Macintosh, it may not make Windows Explorer look like the Mac Finder. See this as a starting point:

And then you can either dual boot Mac OS and Windows or run Windows in Parallels. Might be a bit more advanced than what you're looking for. :-)

Speaking of that your only chance might be using an entire Windows shell replacement. You can find a list at the following Wiki entry:

As someone pointed out what you bascially need is a Windows Shell replacement. I am sure there are many alternatives out there which include features available on Mac Finder.
