Do any 20D users have a method for downloading the 20D's jpeg files to TIFF files directly in PSE3.0? Or does everyone "Save As" into TIFF?

Yes you would have to save as.

Why do you want TIFF?

If you want TIFF because its compression is lossless then you'd be better to convert the 20D's RAW .cr2 files into TIFF.

The EOS Viewer will convert .CR2 --> TIFF

You are correct! I am taking an on-line photo course and they prefer TIFF. I also want to compare a print of jpeg v tiff. Thank you very much for the tip.

Better yet shoot RAW and JPG at the same time. Batch convert your raws to TIFFs and compare later.

What on-line photo course are you taking? I will be upgrading to PS CS2 from PS 7.0 and I know I will be needing some training.

The courses seem pretty expensive for on-line courses. Hopefully they are worth it. You can buy quite a few books for the price of one of their courses.

I have some sucess converting jpeg images to tiff then sharpening and other things rather than saving the raw files with the jpegs. The other day I took about a 100 pictures of hummingbirds and got a few good ones. It wouldn't have been practical to save the jpeg and raw images.

yes the courses are pricey but I get feedback to my photos that I think are good and taken properly but find out they are not so good and what I could have done to better them. I don't put a price on learning( not a disparaging remark towards your comment). Sometimes I need the OJT(on-the-job training) to remove cobwebs. Thanks for your input. Good shooting!
