If you grab the DDS plug in for Photoshop, it's easy as pie:)

You open the texture, go filters drop down and right at the bottom will be a new option "Nvidia tools". Click normal map. It'll ask a few options, i leave everything as default and click OK, wham......image is converted to a normal map.
Save and import :)

You don't get very well defined normal maps with only that filter. You get best results from rendering one from a highpoly model. But since I don't think you want to do that, you should try Crazy bump:
