There is a migration possible for this. What you need to do is export
the list of usernames from the NT SAM, and then import them into
the RadiusNT database. You can use MS Access to do the import, as
its usually easier (even to an SQL linked table). When you import
the users, set their Passwords to "WINNT". In the RadiusNT admin,
set the password replace option and make sure RadiusNT can auth against
the NT SAM (see the docs for the details on that one).

What will happen is when the user's auth, their first auth will go
against the NT SAM. If good, RadiusNT will overwrite the WINNT password
with their actual password. After a while, you'll have all the
in the DB, and can get rid of the NT SAM.
