In Mathematica 4, you can use Import[] to read in the file and let
the the kernel try to parse things automatically.

In[3]:= Import["datafile.txt", "Table", 
          ConversionOptions -> {
            TableSeparators -> {{"\n"}, {"\t", " "}}
          }
        ]

It's not exactly clear to me what's going on with the options here. Can
you tell us where we can read more about ConversionOptions?
