Okay, pardon any incoherent babble - I'm battling a head cold.
My client's gotten through Podz's tutorial on installing WP on his laptop. He's downloaded the database, and made all the changes using SCR. He's got xampp running, the whole nine.
What we can't figure out, is how to import the database into this locally hosted WP.
(Bottom line - he wants a carbon copy of what's live on the web, on his laptop, for taking to meetings, etc. where the internet isn't available...)
