My advice is just based on my experience, Hoppy.  I was having 
trouble with color balance on photos I posted on pbase and someone on 
the this most helpful of lists suggested that maybe I was assigning 
the color profile instead of actually converting it.  I started 
converting to sRGB and haven't had any problems since then.  If you 
are into reading big, heavy books on Photoshop, Real World Color 
Management has a good section on assigning and embedding profiles and 
when to convert.  And if you really want to get confused, you can 
also read Dan Margulis' book on Color Management for 
Photographers.  ;-)   The two books give almost opposite advice so 
you just have to try and see what works for you.
