Hi Frank,
Yes, there is another convertor.
http://avce00.maptools.org - allows you to import/export e00 files to 
coverages.  Any OGR-based reader, like Grass6 and QGIS, should then be able 
to load the coverage.  If you still need shapefiles, then you can use the 
ogr2ogr convertor, part of:
To convert the polygons (PAL) coverage into a shapefile, it would look 
something like:
ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" output.shp /path/to/coverage/folder PAL

Hope that helps.
