Is there a tool that can take a windows server 2008 and make a vdh or vmdk out of that box?

Yup. Take a look at VMware Converter.

Thanks Shane for being prompt. Looks like it's a FREE tool. Am I right? –  Andy Conan Jan 6 '12 at 18:43
    
@AndyConan Indeed you are, though I believe you need to register on their site for the download. –  Shane Madden Jan 6 '12 at 18:44
    
This doesn't suffer from chipset differences and not being able to boot? –  Tim Jan 6 '12 at 19:14
    
@tim - I've only done windows machines, but no, no issues with chipsets or HAL etc. –  Mark Henderson Jan 6 '12 at 20:15

Also, the SysInternals guys have Disk2vhd, which converts to a vhd, as the name implies...

I've used it successfully in a production environment several times.
