[Samba] NT4 to Samba 3 domain transfer

I'm in the process of following John's excellent instructions for 
transfering an NT4 domain to Samba 3.0.20 running on 2.6.9-gentoo-r6 on 
an Intel box.

Most things seem to work fine apart from the transfer of the machine 
accounts.  These do not get moved because as retrieved from the NT 
server the name is in upper case and adduser refuses to add names in 
upper case, so I get the message 'unable to add posix account'.  I 
presume that adding in lower case will work just as well but there are 
rather a lot of them and I'd prefer the automated approach. 

Has anyone solved this before me?
