Then, the following post was a nice walk thru showing how to set up user profile imports using BCS: http://www.dotnetfunda.com/articles/article1628-user-profile-imports-using-bcs.aspx

Finally, when we saw that the import (using miisclient.exe) failed because of a missing anchor component, the following post was a life saver: http://www.sharepointfabian.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=193
