I like the B+W tool in CS3 or Light room.

It depends on what software you have.  If you're using Lightroom, you might want to watch this:

There's another video here, comparing Photoshop and Lightroom techniques.  It's old in computer terms, but effective:

Hope that helps...

The first step for me is usually just to look at the separate layers and experiment with small changes there, then recombine to see if I'm getting better detail or perspective before doing the flop to B&W.

In lightroom you just want to create a virtual copy of the image.  It is in the right click menu.

I like to do that before I get very far down any creative path.  That way I have an original with basic adjustments and then virtual copies for anything creative.

As long as you don't desaturate or convert to grayscale IMHO it doesn't matter because the "real" conversion takes place when curves and blend modes or something similar are used to get the look you want
