The smoothest way to migrate the domain off PC Netlink is to
install a NT4 (!) BDC to suck down the user db, then cut the
network between PC Netlink and the BDC, then promote the BDC
to a PDC from which you can vampire the SAM.

A colleague of mine has successfully done this for a 13.000
user domain.
