Converting Outlook Personal Address Book from MAC to PC

My company is in the process of moving from Mac to PC.  We have many users who have their personal address book in Outlook version for MAC.  They want to be able to import those addresses to MS Outlook 98 (PC format).  When I try adding those *.pab files to Outlook 98, the system indicates that the file is not a valid personal address book file.
