Is it possible to import keys created with version 2.x of PGP? I am using GNuPG version 1.0.1 and I receive the following error when I attempt to import the key:
	gpg: key <key ID>: unsupported public key algorithm
	gpg: key <key ID>: no valid user IDs
	gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
	gpg: total number processed: 1
	gpg:           w/o user IDs: 1

I realize that this probabily has something to do with the RSA algorithm, but how can I verify/decrypt messages made with pgp 2.x?
