Did you try a straight import?
Press new table and select import and the wizard will guide you.

The .k01, etc files are Key(index) files. You could look into them (notepad) to check what fields are used to define them in access if wanted/needed. I think .k01 will be the prime key and .k02, etc secundairy.

You can always use DataJunction, a sort of Universal DB converter.
