Why bother doing this at all?
Photoshop can process NEF files.

What version? I am using CS4 but CS2 still has ACR.

Perhaps you two were unaware of the fact that Adobe does not retroactively update its previous versions of Camera Raw when adding new camera profiles. I guess it's a sneaky way for Adobe to force you to buy the latest version of Photoshop if you want to use a newer camera. Let's say for example Peter is using a D7000. In this case, the D7000 is only supported by ACR version 6.3 or higher. ACR 6.3 in turn can only be used with CS5, and not with CS4, CS3, etc... The only way around this (other than buying CS5) is to convert his .nef files to .dng which can be opened with any version of ACR/Photoshop.
