[REQ] Extract the first PDF page as image

I've got a directory full of PDFs, and I need to extract the first page from each of them and save it as an image file.
It has to be done under Windows XP.

Anybody knows about some free tool to do it?
Don't need a GUI, of course.

Thanks

Try ABC Amber PDF Converter. Extract first page.
Drop into Gimp as a new image w/ text.
Save.

Here is one I just converted. Took a little longer because of the graphic.
If you are looking for something automated, I can't help you.

Tahks, cutledge.
I'm rather looking for something more automated, giving in input the whole directory.
I found a couple of software to do it, but none of them was free...
