You can get the groups from your NT Server:

rpcclient -U administrator%password -c 'enumdomgroups' SERVERNAME

With the hex RID you could now get the members of each group, here for the
"Domain Users":

rpcclient -U administrator%password -c 'querygroupmem 0x201' SERVERNAME

Or the groups a user (identified by the decimal RID) is in:

rpcclient -U administrator%password -c 'queryusergroups 1107' SERVERNAME

And with a bit of effort and perlmagic, you could build yourself a nice
script which gets the users and their groupmemberships and puts them into
Linux groups.
