Hi... longtime lurker, first time poster.

I have an EOS 20D that I bought to replace my 10D that was stolen on a cruise last year.

While I know that I can shoot RAW (and usually do) + jpg, my concern is that for quick satisfaction needs - going on vacation and walking into a Kinkos to make a print, for example - the prints using standard parameter sharpness just seem a little soft.

If I max out on sharpness in the processing parameter, does that actually eliminate the need for post processing sharpness corrections? Does it screw things up for post processing RAW files?

Any guidance on this front from those more experienced than I would be much appreciated.

The 20D comes factory set to parameter 2, which is a little soft. Set it parameter 1 which bumps up the contrast, shapness, and saturation to give you a more vivid image.
