This question already has an answer here:
How does one access data from an Esri file geodatabase in Quantum GIS?
I've seen snippets of conversation that indicate it's possible with qgis 1.7+ and gdal 1.9+ but no clear recipe.
I recognize that in a few months or a year this will likely be a non question ("just click [add data] button"), but today, I'm stumped. ;-)
