osCommerce Migration Tool
I use Magento 1.5.1 freshly installed. This extension stopped at importing categories so I replaced run.php in the package with http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.5-trunk/app/code/core/Mage/Oscommerce/Block/Adminhtml/Import/Run.php as information below. It finished importing. But it didn't any products and customer's addresses are half blank (it imported only zip code, country and phone number)...

The import did not work at first, it said "Categories processed 0% 0/229 records" for more than half an hour and no AJAX activity was going on in Firebug.
I tried spanakorizo's hint with the trunk-version of Run.php (find it at http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.5-trunk/app/code/core/Mage/Oscommerce/Block/Adminhtml/Import/Run.php) and now it's importing!

This product does not work well when your are installing complicated products into Magento. I have a custom structured Magento (new package besides the default package). When I installed the products, it created a whole new root category, it broke the url rewrite section and my site. Had to revert back. It errored out when trying to import customers (only got 44% done out of 29,000 customers). Could not move pass the error.
BE VERY CAREFUL when using this product. Try it only on a fresh install of Magento.

I tried to install this on a fresh Magento, when I tried to add it with Connect all I got was a red bar under the install button. Seems the package cannot be installed properly. Shame really

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS EXTENSION!!!!! I am a highly paid PHP developer that was contracted to migrate an OSC store to Magento. I just spent a week and a half trying to get it to work and now I get to give up and pay out of my own pocket for Cart2Cart to migrate my store.
I really really wish Magento did not offer this extension on their website without some sort of disclaimer saying you'll never get it to work. If you search the internet for a year you will not find a single person that had this extension do what they wanted.
Again, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!! I PROMISE YOU WON'T EVER GET IT TO WORK, YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME, LOOK ELSEWHERE. YOU MAY THINK IT'S WORKING OR YOU MAY GET IT TO PARTIALLY WORK BUT IT WILL END IN FIST SLAMMING FRUSTRATION.

I use CatalogLoader for migration, it is a universal migration tool.
