smbtar question?

Hi all,

I want to move a filesystem off of my NT server over to my Network
Appliance NFS server to then be shared via Samba.  I assume the easiest
way to accomplish this would be to use smbtar.  Do I then
use smbtar to extract the tar file I create with smbtar, or, can I use
gnutar?  Does it matter?  Am I safer sticking with smbtar?

I'm guessing that since smbtar is a wrapper around smbclient, that there
might be some magic in the smbclient portion of it.  Though, just doing
a quick tar tvf of the tar.out file appears to work properly.
