You will have to follow these steps since this is a non-Windows OS.

Am I to assume that the statement:

SCVMM only converts virtual machines with Windows operating systems installed.  And XenConvert is designed for Windows OSes only as well

refers to the VM to be converted needs to be a Windows OS?  

In my case it's a Server 2003.

Yes, that is correct. You can use SCVMM to convert this server to Hyper-V.
