Convert linux server to windows XP?

By ravenseven ·
Several months ago, I've been given the task of administrating a school computer lab. The setup is a Windows NT4 server and RedHat Linux 6.2 server (acting as home directory file server) and NT4 workstations. For the spring semester, we'll be going to Windows XP. Is there a way to convert the linux server into a Windows XP server while keeping the home directories intact (such as ownership and permissions)? (The current NT4 server will be upgraded to XP server, also.)

Convert linux server to windows XP?

if you can find a way of getting the permisions to output in some sort of .csv file (I don't know how) then you should be able to bring them into XP via command line. There is an article for doing this through Exchange server in the tips section of TechRepublic.

I guess what I'm saying is that it should be possible, but I don't know how.... just hoping to point you in a direction.
