Please see:
Converting to SMF
All the instructions, step by step, are there.
The main point to pay attention to is IMHO the database users: the database user for the SMF database should have access to the VB database. You can do that by using the same database for both forums, or by using two databases but setting the same user for the two databases, or making modifications in your host's panel to have the user for the SMF database have rights on the VB database.

You need two files to convert, a convert.php and an .sql file. Please try the attached ones. They need to be in the SMF folder, after you install SMF 2.0 RC1.2 on your host's server.
After it's all set up, please run convert.php.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're doneā€¦ until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.
