[Koha] Follett -> KOHA --- 050 field issues

Hello Everybody,

We have decided to change from Follett (2001v) to KOHA.  We exported our
MARC records from KOHA but there are some things we don't understand.  The
records all contain the LC number in the Follett 852 field and there are no
050 or 090 LC fields.  

If we replace the 852 to 952 fields, as noted in the KOHA documentation,
what do we do about the missing 050 fields?  Follett seems to grab the call
numbers from the 852 field.  What will KOHA do?  Do we have create 050
fields for each record now?

By-the-way, I am helping with this migration and just graduated with my MLS. 
So I don't know anything about how they used this system before me and the
librarian isn't that technical.  I am stuck in the middle of this migration
process trying to determine why 050s were not used and so I don't know if
this is a Follett problem, some configuration issue when they set up Follett
initially, or something currently being done when they enter records.

Here is a sample of a MARC record:

As you can see, the record has multiple 852 fields.  One of the other issues
that I can see happening is that for us to export the data into KOHA, the
documentation says we need to convert 852 fields to 952s.  There only
appears to be one 952 field allowed, from what I can see, and so how can
KOHA deal with all the 852 fields?  It will try to merge them into one? 
Bomb out completely?  Not sure what is going on what that too.

Any help anyone can provide would be great.  We are spinning our tires on
this one trying to figure out how to move forward.
