How do I extract the sounds from a HyperCard stack and put it into a Revolution stack?

I just bought revolution a few days ago, so I am definitely new at
this...but. If you use revolution to open your existing hypercard stack, the
sounds should be there. I accessed the sounds through buttons in hypercard
and most of them worked right away in revolution. Now, I need to get a
routine to dial a phone. My phone is tied into a mixer in my weather
broadcast area, so the tones (from hypercard) go through the mixer and dial
any number I need.

In OSX, I found that I had to use an external drive for the stacks I wanted
to convert because I couldn't read the files if transferred them directly to
my powerbook g4 first.
