Need Help with combining meshes

Hey there!
I am working on my modelling. doing a human head using Jasons latest tutorials from montage. (he does great work)
getting to the part with the ear but dont have time to model it yet.
I found a modelled ear on this forum and want to bring it into my scene with the current model.
When I append it in edit mode it comes in as a separate mesh (unlike when you bring a primitive and they both can be edited together) but I want to have the ear with the current head mesh so I can attach it.
How do i make both meshes work together in edit mode???

A concerned citizen!

Select both meshes , then Ctrl-J (Join Objects)


Thats it, Thanks. Saved me some hassle. This is one of reasons I switched to Blender, great forums.
