The DXF importer is not working because the old one was taken out... we will be building up a new one but it is going to be many months before we have it done.
Sorry about that

ok - so any suggestions on how I can convert a dxf to g-code so I can get it into M3?

OH! and not have to spend another fortune ---

try lazycam, it comes bundeled with mach 3, look for it on the mach3 folder, there is a video about lazycam on the tutorials section on this website
hope that would get you started
