if your new zope instance on linux has the same products installed then 
migration involves the following:

- copy Data.fs into the new instance
- start the new instance

...and if you have CMF instances in your ZODB already you must go to each 
CMF skins tool and adjust the "Filesystem Path" property for every 
Filesystem Directory View object so that the correct path separator is
