Migrating an NT4 server today can be challenging due to lack of drivers for newer hw. Migrating to older hw is rarely something you would want to do because of access to old spare parts, etc..

Stll, there are a few resources on v2p. PlateSpin PowerConvert is a commercial product that can help you do it. VMware also have some docs here: http://www.vmware.com/support/v2p/index.html

You might want to check out this VMware doc on V2P first:

I agree with PlateSpin being a good option.  Another option:
