The prefered way is to set up an imap server on a linux box, and set outlook up to talk to it. You can then copy all the contents of a pst file (including directories) onto the imap server.

Note that configuring an IMAP server isn't trivial, and documentation
is sketchy, unless you want to spring for the O'Reilly book.

depending on which one. cyrus is pretty complicated to set up (mostly because of very weird or missing error messages) but uw-imap is trivial to set up - you install it and that's pretty much it.

So if it's IMAP just to get stuff out of outlook I'd say uw-imap makes sense... (in fact IMO there's really no excuse to not have imap:-)
