Old keys are probably out of date now and you may be better off updating from
keyservers if you have a list of keyid's.

Can't help unless you specify the error messages!

Only if your keys use IDEA - otherwise (IIRC) GnuPG doesn't need to look at
the key preferences until the imported key is used in some way (to verify, to
encrypt to or edited).
One easy method (If you have KDE 3.2.1):
Import the keys you can then use KGpg (latest version from KDE3.2.1) to
'import missing signatories from keyserver'. If the keys are tightly bound,
this will bring in most of the other keys.
