How can I determine if I'm using proper form transitioning to minimalist running shoes?

( I read this earlier question
Last month I bought a pair of New Balance Minimus shoes and started running. I knew that switching from traditional running shoes would require time as my lower legs adjusted, so I've dialed the mileage back to about three-ish miles per run a few times a week.
How can I determine if I've got the right mid-foot strike, and how long until my lower legs adjust? I know you're supposed to hit 180 steps/minute , but my calves, knees and entire lower legs are definitely feeling it, and I don't want to inadvertently injure myself.
