loosing the saturation is ctrl + u, but I recommend changing modes as this isn't permenant, neither is the saturation method if you create a backup.

Are you using CS2 or CS3? CS3 has a very nice new feature called 'Black & White'. Use it if at all possible.

If you have CS2, the most common way is to attach 2 adjustment layers to your image. The first being a Hue/Saturation layer like everyone has suggested. The second layer is a 'Levels' layer which will allow you to more finely tune the contrast & brightness of certain shades. The Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer in CS2 isn't very good - use the 'Levels' instead.

That's it, I couldn't remember the second adjustment layer. pickle FTW!

I use Lightroom (which seems excellent), but only on RAW files. Not sure where the performance edge comes from, the file or the app.

:idea: yes to edit colored picture to gray scale, look for hue and (- +) saturation settings. It can help edit color for the selected photo.
