Novell 4.11 migration to NT 4.0

I recently reinstalled NT 4.0 SP6a on an old Novell 4.11 server. Prior to the install, I copied all the files from the Novell server to our PDC NT 4.0 SP6a server, including user directories.
I did not use any migration utilities, just plain old File Manager Copy/Paste.
Now, whenever users try to access files that were originally located on the Novell server, their PCs (Win98SE,Win2kPro SP2) hang for approximately 2-3 minutes as soon as the file is highlighted.

Help!

Thanks for your help,

check if the file attributes have not been copied over as well with the data and therefore in the background there may still be active searches for the original user accounts.

try replacing the rights on the directories.
