Suggset you install and configure MARS (marsnwe, also known as mars_nwe)
RPM package for your platform. This will provide an NCP over IPX ability
to migrate your files to the Linux system.

Please note that following migration of the data files you will need to
reconfigure your Windows clients so that they do not use the NWClient32
drivers. Instead, you will need only standard Microsoft drivers for Samba

Printers will have to be set up individually on the Linux system. You will
also need to re-install printers on the Windows clients.
