You are looking for pages 106-109 in the manual. Downloading the PDF version of the manual makes searching through it much easier.

I don't have a D5000, but my D700 has similar menu options to it. Adjusting the contrast, I can see the difference in the B&W images created by the camera.

The camera does a very simple conversion to b&w. You can get the same or better results doing the conversion on your computer where you have more control over the process (depending on the software used).
