Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If all else fails:
1 set up imap server on second machine.
2 Configure that imap account in outlook as a second acount
3 Start large copy operation from outlook mail to imap folders etc.
4 Boot in linux, start evolution
5 Configure imap server as second account
Thinking it over, this sounds like a tremendous hassle. Personally I prefer to stick with keeping my mail on the imap server. That way I can switch to any client I want.
after a little more research of the above article, it seems that the program Outport will work well, for my needs anyway. It grabs Contacts, Email, and Tasks from Outlook and outputs them to an Evolution importable file. Just need to do a reboot to the windows partition to run it. (Might try running it under wine if you're opposed to a reboot). I think this would be a lot simpler than the mass email forwarding, plus you can grab contacts and tasks.
