I am working with the Landfire Data - the tables that identify the values for the raster images include RBG colors for each unique value. How do I import these values to create a style for vegetation, height and type?

Mapping Center Answer:

You will need to do that manually.  Unfortunately there is no tool that we know of to do that.

You can use the RGB values in a color map file that you can use to display the raster. Take a look at the online help about how to create the color map file. I think this is the best solution for your case, as long as you know which values in the raster get assigned which RGB values. Here is the link to the online help topic:
