Utility to convert M$ *.mix graphics files.

Does anyone know of a program for F7 to batch convert photos from the
M$ Photodraw *.mix format into something more useful, such as jpeg? We
have many photos which I downloaded from the camera straight into
Photodraw years ago, (before I knew of Linux) but the kids now want to
use them since we have the new laptop with F7. For now it looks like
converting them one-by-one on the old Win98 lappy, which would be a very
long and slow job.
I've trialled a couple of Windoze programs, but the batching ones won't
touch the *.mix format. Apparently M$ used different types of *.mix
formats over the years which makes it tricky. I haven't found anything
for Linux, yet. One forum site looked good with links to RPM downloads,
but one link didn't work and the other went to a site in French, which
looked more like a telecommunications site. I s'pose the program there
would be in French too.
I'll keep looking. Thanks in advance
