Virtual PC VHD to VMWare ESX Server

I created a MS Virtual PC vhd image for my customer who is running VMWare ESX Server.  My customer is telling me there is a problem with converting my VPC image file to a compatible VMWare image.  

Isn't there a straightforward way to do this?  I was thinking that the conversion was supported natively by VMWare ESX server (although I've never used it).  VMWare Workstation which reads my VHD images just fine.. is ESX Server that different?

Whats the recommended migration strategy experts?

If you use V6 of workstation you should be able to convert it.

There is also a convert tool you can DL for 5 I believe

Actually, if you just have a .VHD file for say a Windows Server 2008 demo ... VMWare Workstation can NOT open/convert it. It's wants the .VMX first. Just FYI.
