Olive Trees

My daughter brought back some black olives she picked from a tree in Spain,
along with some soil.  Having a long mediterranean love affair with olives,
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them, such as:
How to propagate them?  Can I get the olives to sprout? or should I just
mail order a cutting from somewhere?  (and where?).
Can they live in E. Tennessee year round outside?  And how long does it
really take to get olives from them?  Am I wasting my time?  Should I just
get an olive tree screen saver?
