Sorry for not updating.
Tested copy script and it worked fine.
I found a list of all the users in a text file and copy/paste on a windows box into notepad after the copy script.
chown username:users /home/username
chown root:root /home
Used copy/paste like crazy to essentially complete a bunch of chown commands.
Couldn't find any way of doing passwd command. You can't use the -e switch while setting the password. Thank God for tab complete...
The chown part would have been simpler, but I couldn't get the "basename" to work.
Everything tested out okay though and the boss was happy.
Thanks for your help guys...
