Using windows backup on linux?

    I have a plesk windows server running currently. I plan on migrating the server over to linux for added security. If I were to create a full backup on my windows server, would it properly restore onto a linux version of plesk?

    Also, what distribution of linux would be most appropriate for the usage of a webserver?

    I appreciate everyones help.

    Yeah it can be done, with some hacking. The backups aren't a 1 to 1 compatible format, since you've got some settings that dont translate, like mssql. What I ended up doing was to make a pseudo importer using the command line tools.

    My distribution of choice would be to use CentOS 5. How many domains do you have? Maybe I can tweak what I wrote to be something a little more usable.
