[K12OSN] Need some specific SAMBA/LDAP Help



Hello all,
I'm hoping that some of you more experienced with this stuff can help me out. I want to move my NT domain to a SAMBA/LDAP setup, but I really don't know what I'm doing. I've got two Windows NT machines that are currently serving as a PDC and BDC. Both have user files on them- one for HS/Admin and one for MS/ES. I want to dump the BDC/MS/ES machine and move everyone's accounts and personal files to the PDC/HS/Admin machine after I've installed Linux on it. What's the best way to go about this? Here's what I had in mind, please tell me if it's dumb. I thought I'd move the drives out of the PDC and put them into a lesser machine temporarily, then upgrade the existing machine as necessary (more RAM and a RAID- it's already a Dual Xeon). Then let the SAMBA/LDAP script pull all of the existing user information from the NT installation on the temporary machine (it does do that, right?). Then I would need to move the users data into the newly-created /Home directory and set the appropriate permissions. Is there an efficient way of doing this for about 900 users? Next I would need to "Promote" the new SAMBA/LDAP machine to be the PDC and decommission the old BDC. I'm a relative Linux newbie here, so talk slow. ;)
