here's my _very_ rough attempt at it (both objects were 'double sided', then select base object first, shift select cylinder to cut-out, then boolean-subtract):
i managed to figure it out. still getting the hang of exporting the model to AC3D then back. I think i am getting somewhere now though. Will find out shortly. I'll follow your tips though. They make sense.
