Here is a tutorial I picked up recently that is a very simple breakdown of conversion options within Photoshop for simulation of black & white film. While these all work well to a fashion, from what I have seen, Binuscan's PhotoRetouch Pro is far better at colour conversions than Photoshop but it's a hefty price to pay for just the one tool....

i never knew that, thats cool. But from those four options, i think Desaturate looks the best.

It's all relative to the image really so - as it suggests - you should try out all your options to see how it goes.

A handy guide for all these methods. A lot will depend on the subject matter too but this will make a quick reference guide for running the image through all methods to find the effect that gets the results you're looking for.
