[filmscanners] Scanning B & W

Hi... posted this a couple of days ago and no one's responded... so here
goes again:

Am just starting to scan B&W... now, i realise there are some obvious
issues... ICE for instance... but what i'd like are a few basic tips that'll
save me having to reinvent the wheel.... :) (Am using a Nikon 4000ED)

1/ Realise that Nikon scans in RGB and then converts to Greyscale. Question:
Therefore, would it be better to scan in RGB and do the conversion in
Photoshop, etc.?

2/ I like grain.... one of the reasons i mainly shoot on TriX for my
personal stuff... what are the issues here? How do i keep the grainy look?
Or will it get overaccentuated?

3/ Eg. The screen seems to show a nice mix of black to white and greys...
but the histogram shows white peaking at the 255 level...ok... but the black
falls short of the 0 level. Am i therefore, setting the analog gain too

Just a few questions, but any tips and further suggestions are very, very
welcome... :)

Thanks in advance...
