[Samba] read (and edit?) registry files on Linux

Is there a way in Linux to read Windows registry files?

I have only ssh access to the Linux/Samba server, and would like to be able 
to check settings in user profiles (in their ntuser.dat files). Best would 
be if I could even edit settings in there.

For now, it seems the only thing I can do is scp the files to a Windows 
machine, and manually load the hives in regedt32. Very cumbersome. I'm 
looking for a more Linux-like solution: command-line, scriptable, etc.

BTW, I have Samba 3.0.2a.
