Dump to xml on your windows platform (rrdtool dump), copy the xml files
to your linux platfrom and use 'rrdtool restore' to recreate the rrd
files from the xml files.

I had to do a conversion from solaris to linux using this same technique
for about 25,000 rrd files. With a little bit of simple scripting and
planning it was pretty painless.
