    That could be an Easy Answer or a complex answer.

    Sorry that's not enough Information, for me to answer.
    Like do you have applications that require SPX.
    are the transportable to TCP/IP?
    Are the .NLM's you using that you require for business?
    etc etc...

    I'd get a on-site Consultation.
    From someone who Knows both Novell and SBS 2003 (Make sure they know both)

    There's just too many variables to say if it's hard or easy.

    I was under the impression that there was a tool/wizrd to facilitate
    migration.Is it true to say that it would be best to start the SBS from
    scracth ie User creation and just do a plain Data transfer ?

  6. If your Novell is running IPX and not IP simply leave it on the network
    temporarily and have one of your XP computers have the Windows Client for
    Netware Installed. This will allow you to logon to the Netware server
    (including Novell login scripts) and transfer data as desired. If the Novell
    server is 5.0 or higher and is running IP then stop DHCP on the Novell box
    and set a static IP in the same subnet as the SBS internal NIC or Bind IPX
