  Import from what kind of system? If it's another MS-DOS/Windows system
then LapLink or FastLynx is the easiest. FastLynx has a way to install
itself to disk-less machines over the cable. LL probably does too. If one
is a non-MS-DOS system then Kermit is probably best. it's available for a
LOT of didfferent systems. I haven't used if but Dave Mabry uses it
successfully to transfer files to and from a PC and the Intel MDSs and
they're very different machines.
