I never got much response on this issue, but I did get the problem resolved.

We got the NT box hooked up to the D1000 with an Adaptec AHA-2944UW scsi
card.  There was little to no setup at all.  The four drives on the side I
hooked up to the NT box appeared in windows exactly as they did while hooked
up to the sun box.  Of course I had to initialize the drives in Disk Admin
and create partitions and format them, but other than that everything worked
