Virtualization Physical to Virtual - best alternative methods

I have a Windows 2000 server that I need to virtualize into a guest session on a Server 2008 X64 with HyperV.  I have a Ghosted copy of the drive on another drive that is bootable, a Ghost image file and also an Acronis image file available to me as well as the original system.  Given all of those options, what would be the easiest way to do what I want.

If I am correct then the Acronis image file will be hardware agnostic, so it would be easy to create a VM in Hyper-V and then boot from Acronis and restore the image.

Just to make sure I understand. You are proposing that I boot the VM session with the Acronis restore CD, point to the Acronis image and away I go?
