Conversion of MS virtual server machines to VMware ESXi...

I am going to be purchasing a machine with VMware ESXi. I currently have MS virtual machine 2005 running and I will need to convert those machines over to ESXi. I have researched a bit, but the info in conflicting. Before I ask any questions, I would like to see how others would recommend doing it and/or what other software I might need.

There is the VMware converter, but on the VMware website it says that if you have ESX you need VMware converter enterprise. But VMware converter enterprise comes with the Virtual Server management foundation package, which I cannot get for ESX. As you can see, confusion.

Thanks!

you can still use the vmware convertor the free edition, which converts 1 at a time, as opposed to the enterprise edition.

Further to that you can use ShadowProtect 3.0 server editions, or IT Edition to do V2V migrations.
