move Hyper-V to VMWare Server 2.0

We currently run a windows 2008 guest on a windows Hyper-V host. I want to install VMWare Server 2.0 on the host and move the guest from Hyper-V to VMWare Server 2.0.

The main reason is the lack of USB support in Hyper-V.

Is this posible and how do I go about it?

Run VMWare's convert tool to convert the 2008 guest to a VMWare 2.0 vm. You can do this live, once done you shut down the HyperV VM and startup the VMware one. The convert tool is free from VMWare.
