    Is this just for your machine or for your whole network?

      Run Windows Easy Transfer / FSTW and store your profile somewhere accessible on the new network

            Easy Transfer is on Win7 -- the XP equivalent is Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (MigWiz)

            IIRC you run it on the new Win 7 box first and it creates an exe you can run on WinXP

            There is a domain level tool (USMT) but I dont think it will cope with Netware

                No, you can run the wizard manually for each user
                There is a separate tool which largely automates the process (USMT) but this will not be available
