Don't they make a version of Maple for Linux?  Maybe you could get your
copy transferred to a Linux license, for free?  Probably wishfull

WINE might work, might not.  You would probably have to try it to find
out.  If at all possible, I would put the NT system on FAT32, despite
its inferiority, as NTFS is experimental in write mode, as others have
noted, and has been as long as I can remember.  I doubt if it will ever
be stable in write mode.

Mathematica does come in Linux, and it seems like I remember Maple did,
too.  There is also a software package called Maxima, which is a Lisp
computer algebra system, descended from Macsyma, which is the CAS that
started it all.  It is not totally polished, and a bit hard to learn,
but you might look at it if you really wanted to stay in Linux.  Maxima
is free, under the GPL.
