Converter from IPB to SMF?

Another "Me too" post :)

Alexandre P.:
Just a little parenthesis about IPB: since the version 1.3.1, Invision Power changed its license.  IPB is now a paid forum software, like vBulletin, except that IPB 1.3.1 and newer allow a free *unlimited* trial period.  I think the license change could bring more people to use other forum softwares, like SMF.

(End of the parenthesis ;) )

Actually, we know about that... and we plan to put extra work into the converter for this very reason.  As it happens, the Invision Power Board converter is 68 kb - by far the largest of the ones done so far.

The exact reason I am here.

Hi. I am currently running Invision 1.2, but I've been playing with SMF and might want to switch over. So, this is probably a ridiculous question, but exactly how do I convert from Invision 1.2 to SMF? And do I need to have SMF installed already? I get that I have to use the converter, but I don't know exactly what to do with it. I downloaded the converter. But what directory do I put it in? What about the database, etc.?

Sorry for the noob questions, and thanks in advance for your help,
L.

P.S.
I did search this site before posting, but I couldn't find anything that stated exactly what steps I would have to take for a conversion.
