There are a few tables affected by adding a node. My suggestions:
1. Node Import module -- alpha version
2. Write custom queries to insert data into each table
3. Use node_save for rescue, I would use this :-) Lets say you have a
table where you have the 4 pieces of data for every story, browse through
them using mysql and build the node object accordingly, after building the
node object, use node_save function to create the node (All in all just a
small script can do this)
