Rmail until emacs 23 used the babyl file format, and Gnus has a backend
for that (nnbabyl).  Later versions of Rmail use the standard mbox
format, and of course Gnus can also use that (nnmbox).

So in either way, you can set up Gnus to be able to read the Rmail file,
and if you want, you can simply copy all messages over to some other
group.
