./dnetc -import <filename>

will import the buffers into you Linux client. You will loose any work on 
packets that were not completed in Windows, the Linux client will start over 
on the unfinished packets. 

The Linux client will send in the completed packets and give you credit for 
the work finished.  It will not start over on the packets finished by the 
Windows client.

Good luck on fixing Windows!
