How can I import a bitmap into Freehand 9 and maintain it's transparency - so it WORKS?

Is it possible to import an image into Freehand 9 and maintain it's transparency?
I'm going from Photoshop or Paintshop Pro, so I can save the image in a variety of formats
that support transparency.
What format should I save in Photoshop and how do I import it into Freehand
and maintain the transparency? I've tried importing as PNG, TIFF and EPS, but it shows up
with a "white" background, not transparent.
All the books and help say that you can do it. Photoshop even has a wizard that leads you through the export process, but when I import the resulting EPS into Freehand the file does not display properly. Also, other raster apps also cannot display it.
