Hi MrWyatt,

there is a plugin for Maya available at http://www.drone.org/tutorials/displacement_maps.html (there is also a version compiled for Mental Ray and quite a pile of information about how to set it up).

There was also a big discussion about normal maps, zBrush and Maya going on in this thread: http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=77779&perpage=15&pagenumber=1

Hope this is useful ...
