Tutorial, or better yet an explanation how to use:

read the bottom part of the page:

Starting at v0.12, Qemu-kvm has native support to VMware's disk images 
v6 (seems to be compatible with v7, used by VMware Server). So VMware 
images can could be run with Qemu-kvm without any modification (make 
backups and do it at your own risks though !).

Look at your VMX configuration file:

     scsi0:0.fileName = "zimbra-000001.vmdk"
     uuid.bios = "56 4d 3f 3d 32 80 5b f2-94 31 21 c9 b2 c3 93 b9"
     ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:c3:93:b9"

And then build the command-line:

kvm -drive file=zimbra-000001.vmdk,boot=on \
   -net nic,macaddr=00:0c:29:c3:93:b9 -net tap \
   -uuid 564d3f3d-3280-5bf2-9431-21c9b2c393b9

The UUID is optional, but might be useful for applications using it for 
validation (i.e. Windows), and the MAC address as well.

Second way could be to convert the disk image:

kvm-img convert -O qcow2 zimbra-000001.vmdk zimbra.qcow2
