I don't have 08, so I'm going to assume it's set up similarly to the previous version.

Under File, there should be an option to Import to Library. That should make it easy for you to bring those pictures into iPhoto, and then you can create an album for them to keep them organized.

If you don't want to lose the actual file organization, you can uncheck the box in the advanced tab of iPhoto preferences that says "copy photos to iPhoto library". Then the photos will be in iPhoto, but they'll stay organized as files. However, this won't organize the photos in iPhoto itself.

When I did mine, I just made a backup of the photos to DVD and then imported the DVD. It kept everything in the folders I had them in. Hopefully that will work for yoU!
