Thanks everyone.. this one seems to be doing it. Taking its time
but its a hell of a lot of data to move (about 10 gb). The funny
thing is that its data thats stored on a windoze server but there
is basically no percievable way to actually do this with windows
so I had to mount the share on the Linux box and do it through this!
