[Oliver Peters] "1. First - fire the camera operator. This is a HUGE mistake.
2. Edit at 29.97 with pulldown added to the second camera.
3. Find a Teranex to do a 30-24 conversion for the final master. Forget a software approach is you want the best results.

Yes, Oliver is right on, here. Hardware conversion is best. I spend a lot of time going from 29.97 to 25, and it is far cleaner. You could use Teranex to convert 29.97 source material to 24 to edit in 24, but if you can't do that first, definately edit at 29.97. Pulldown from the 24 to 29.97 works well.

A quick note: When editing at 29.97 for 24, be very careful about fast flash cuts and very quick inserts. Try not to make any cuts involving movement under 10 frames, and definitely not under 8. These might look stunning at 29.97, but fall apart when you remove a fifth of their frames.
