I want to migrate all my users from REdHAT As/3 to SUSE linux 10, I want to create the same accounts and same password and if it's possible the same samba login and password, is that possible ?

It's possible. To migrate system accounts copy them from RH /etc/passwd to the new system then copy encrypted password from /etc/shadow. Then copy users data from /home. As for samba copy /etc/samba/smbusers and if you want copy definitions of shares from /etc/samba/smb.conf.

Hope this helps :-)
