Fix

NetWare 6 includes VCU.NLM (Volume Copy Utility) which can be used to copy traditional volumes to NSS.  This is not an "in-place" conversion.  It requires free disk space for the new NSS partition equal to or greater than the size of the data on the traditional volume being converted.  It is a copy utility, not a conversion utility.

For more information on VCU.NLM please see the NW6.5 documentation
