If you need line files only there is a neat utility for vector conversions
called "mapmaker"It can import E00 and turn it into ungenerate 
line format. It works well but you loose some attributes.Does lots of other
stuff as well ie. dxf. idrisi, moss and mapinfo conversions

mapmaker is freely available through eric dudley
eric at or search for mapmaker on the internet and
