Hi all,

I'd like to replace an old NT-wins server by a linux box with samba and 
I'm wondering how long it will take for the wins-table on the linux 
machine to get filled up from scatch (the size of the net is of order 
1000 machines). Does anyone have *real-life* data/experiences of such a 
migration ?  Any tipps or hints ?

Is there a way/tool to convert the (Windows) Wins-DB into the wins.dat 
format ?
