Importing Mail from a outlook .pst file to thunderbird

I want to export/import all mail from an outlook .pst file into thunderbird. Any idea's how this is possible? Thunderbird is on SuSE9.1 Pro and is latest version.
I want to avoid forwarding items as there are over 600 emails.

   You can check the following URL:

   Basically there are 2 ways in the URL above:
1. Use Outlook to upload PST file to an "IMAP" server, and setup up Thunderbird to access IMAP.
2. Use Mozilla/Netscape mail to import PST file (convert to local box)

You should just be able to import the pst file directly into thunderbird as long as you have no strange or illegal characters  in your folders under outlook. If you do, change them before import.

Yeah but how! The tools-> Import function doesn't have the option to select a PST file. and I cannot find another way of importing.
