How to open RAW files correctly

Just bought a Nikon D70. I shoot in RAW. Not sure I'm opening the files correctly.

I've run through the various web resources I know...Luminous Landscape, Fred Miranda, Ken Rockwell, etc and all I'm getting is confused. I have Photoshop 6. My camera came with Nikon's Picture Project. If I simply import the RAW files from the camera into PS with Picture Project, am I missing out on something or is this fine? Do I get more information if I simply open straight up in PS? Ken Rockwell seems to feel that the D70's RAW files can't be opened in Photoshop, but I can do it fine, which makes me think maybe it's converting them to jpegs first. I don't know. If there's anyone here who shoots on a D70 in RAW, I could use some explanation.
