The value to me of his opinion is I didn't even know that there might be a difference. The next question, as you suggest, is does it make a sufficient difference to matter to me. Since I have been happy with my PSE RAW conversions for the past year, the answer is probably not. But at least now I am aware that there might be difference.

There are some D90 RAW conversion programs that could be used with CS2, but the ones I looked at were not compatible with my old desk top operating system and hardware. I'm one of those curmudgeons that won't throw out anything until it is broken....and the Apple switch to Intel processors really put me behind the eight ball. I already had PSE on my laptop, so it was an easy (and cheap) work around that fits my work flow reasonably well.

Going through a DNG converter is a neat idea. There may be life for my PSE3 after all!

I downloaded the most recent (free) Adobe DNG Converter and it seems to work fine with CS2, at least for my D90. There is a note in the "read me" with the DNG Converter that suggests there is some interface between it and the existing RAW Converter in Photoshop. It says that for older versions of Photoshop with an old RAW Converter that does not cover some of the newer RAW formats, the ability of the DNG Converter to work with those formats will depend on the specific camera. My D90 RAW seems to work fine.

The disadvantage of the DNG Converter versus the RAW Converter is that the DNG Converter is completely seperate from Photoshop and requires an additional step. But no big deal.

In an earlier post I indicated that the lastest DNG Converter would not work with my old OS. Fortunately I was able to upgrade my OS.

Thanks to Chris and Janusz for stirring me up.
