I don't think you can automagically transfer rights assignments from NetWare to WIndows.  However, you could use TRUSTEE.NLM to document the rights on a volume, then manually re-create them.  I had trouble finding a download link for TRUSTEE.NLM on the Novell web site, but I did find it here:

Hope this helps

The Quest NDS migrator utility will do all of the user/group file and rights from NetWare/eDirectory over to Windows/AD.  I'm not a proponent of migration to Windoze but if you must, this is a pretty good utility.  There is a charge per user to do the work.
