I have a Acronis True Image file here that I'm trying to get a laptop, I would like to convert to a Gohst image so I can then Ghostcast it to the machine. Failing that, how can I get this image from my desktop to my laptop.

We have no full copy of Acronis as we prefer to use Ghost, our client has provided the Acronis image.

There is no conversion method, I've found creating a VM loading the image on the VM and then using Ghost to on the VM to take a ghost image would probably be your best solution.

Hmm, that stinks. How would I work with the Acronis image? Sorry I've never used it before.
