I have done this recently using a tool.  While there may well be issues
in the VSS archive that cause problems (mostly orphaned files), we have
managed to convert all archives so far.

I recommend you check out http://code.google.com/p/vss2svn/

This one works directly against the VSS files without requiring a VSS
client and bunches file commits into svn revisions based on a time
window (i.e. all updates within a few seconds are probably related).
