What i do is copy all the folders to my hard drive, then open up max's material editor.
then using the cd textures. take a map and put it inot the diffuse slot in a material, put the corresponding bump into the bump channel, and the specular map if there is one. save this material to library.
Do this for all the textures saving them all to the same library.( name it 3dtotalcd9 or something you can remember)
save this library to your max matlib folder ( just use the save button )
then you can just get material from the editor and open library and it should be listed there.
then next time you need the texture you have it all set up as a basic shader then just tweak the material properties to suit the needs of the model.
It will take you a couple of hours but it's worth it.
unless there is already a matlib with the cd but i think they only came with the first few.
hope this helps.
