Sharepoint list to document library conversion

Is it possible to convert a List to Document Library in MOSS 2007?
I am working on upgrading a WSS v2 site to MOSS 2007, but having issues with explaining to the management that converting (if it's even possible) is going to be time consuming, and difficult.
The WSS v2 site has been growing wildly for the past couple of years with no supervision. Now that performance is declining, there is a sudden rush to migrate to MOSS 2007. The problem is the WSS v2 site is about 69gb in size, and one of the lists has about 176,000 items. I have urged the business owner to clean up the site, but that is not an option.
The business has read that large lists are still not supported in MOSS 2007, and using a document library will solve our size issue. But a conversion does not seem possible since the content types will be from a different base.
