"In camera optimizing or digital darkroom"



I am new at digital photography. Since my past experience has been with 35mm slide film (F80) and medium format B&W in landscape and close-up, I basically used manual functions on my cameras, manual focus, and hand held light meters or grey card.
When I read the D70 manual about Optimizing Images, it discusses Sharpening, Tone Compensation, Saturation, and Hue adjustments. With my past ways of doing things, I started using my D70 with mostly manual, RAW images, no adjustments to sharpening, contrast, saturation or hues. My theory was that I would have better quality images if I optimize in my digital darkroom instead of letting the camera take care of this.
Am I going about this right?
