It works fine. Just make sure to pick the correct ground classification
if it will be used for a DTM. Otherwise you will get all the las
classes. It will put the las data into a multipoint file and it actually
runs fairly fast. We have created a few countywide terrain data sets
based on las data so far with good results. So far it seems ESRI did a
good job with 9.2 terrains and TINs may finally be able to go away. And,
by the way, 9.2 also imports generate files as well. Good luck.

Has anyone tried bringing a LiDAR dataset (.las file) into 9.2 yet?  If
so, how did it go?
