Post what your settings are with a 20d/30d. Pick your most used settings, and settings for different situation. I think it would be interesting to see what people use on the 20d/30d bodies.

Same as Kevin -- Raw and AV mode are the norm for me.

The correct settings for the shot, whatever they may be, usually Av or M mode with jpeg for sports and RAW for everything else. Focus with rear * button.

Please explain to me the value of this information?
I don't have any 20D/30D, but that doesn't matter, as the 40D is close enough. Still, I use pretty much all the possible settings there are, depending upon the situation. A few options I very rarely use are the pre-programmed modes and mirror lock-up.
I even use the small jpeg with higher compression setting sometimes, if I take images I know I'll enclose in an e-mail immediately after taking them. Thus I may be able to save myself the extra work of reducing them further, before enclosing them.
But still, it all depends upon the situation, and as there are an infinite amount of pictures that can be taken, there are also close to an infinite amount of "most suitable settings".
