There is a vbscript/powershell that can do it.
Collects ACL security settings of the folder structure as well as share listing.

On windows 2008, you can use DFS and dfs-replication to get the data and ownership/permissions from one server to another.  Using domain based share simplifies future server updates/upgrades but requires an AD environment.

This guide gives some good info and a great working VBS script for this kind of thing.
