    Hi all,

    I've written a step-by-step tutorial explaining how to convert virtual machins with VMware Converter, specifically convert ESX / ESXi virtual machines with pre-allocated flat vmdk hard disks to growable hard disks for VMware Player, Server and Workstation.

    The tutorial demonstrates with screenshots taken on a Windows host, mainly, but there's also a pair of screenshots from a Linux host (openSUSE), just to show that VMware Converter works well both on Windows and Linux.

    I hope this can help some of you.

    Regards,
    Mrk
