I am trying to import "Notes" in CRM 4 and am getting "The row is too long to import" on some of my notes.

Does anyone know what the maximum size is and is there a way around this restriction?

Are you using the DMM to import data?  If so, have you tried the suggestion for that error in this article:

If you are importing the records programatically, can you add some logic that splits a row into 2 notes if it is too long?
