Subject: New to DNG and want to get going - How?



I run Photoshop CS2 and Bridge and have a solid, mostly automated workflow for RAW files from my Canon 10D and just recently 5D, for reviewing, ranking, retouching, publishing and archiving images. I've decided to move to DNG, having read Frasure's book on ACR and given it a lot of thought. I'm sold on the concept and ready to make the move. I want to convert my Canon CRW and CR2 files immediately to DNG and then work with the DNG files in Bridge as I heretofore have worked with the RAW files. I want the DNG files to be my permanent "negative" archival images as well. Of course I want to do this as efficiently as possible, using a batch process.

Trouble is, after spending time re-reading sections of the ACR book and browsing CS2 help, and browsing the forums, it's still not clear to me how I run DNG converter. Is it a plug in? Is it supposed to be a process in Bridge or Photoshop? Is it a stand-alone application? Is it somehow embedded in ACR? I plan to download the current versions of ACR and DNG this evening, and I hope I can start using it right away, having just returned from a photoshoot with 500+ important raw images.

Can anyone point me to a good place to get the details on actually running DNG converter so I can move beyond the conceptual understanding to actually using this thing?
