1. Click Image->Adjustments->Desaturate from the menus at the top to desaturate your photo.
2. Click Layer->New Adjustment Layer->Photo Filter from the menus at the top.
3. You can give your adjustment layer a name if you want, then click OK.
4. In the Photo Filter dialog box, choose these settings: Filter: Sepia; Density: 50% (you can play with this one); Preserve Luminosity: checked.

That's all you have to do - if you have an older version of PS and this doesn't work for you, let me know.

It looks like you did pretty good! I'll post the instructions for earlier versions of PS here anyway, just in case someone else is looking:

1. Click Image->Mode->Grayscale from the menus at the top. It will ask you if you want to "Discard color information?", you want to say yes, so click OK.
2. Click Image->Mode->Duotone from the menus at the top. In the Duotone Options dialog box, ensure that the Type is set to Duotone.
3. You have to pick two different colors. Click on the color square of the top color to open the color picker. Change the color to #EB8B23, then click OK. Type "Sepia 1" into the box beside the color. Click on the color square of the bottom color to open the color picker. If it looks different than the normal picker, click the "Picker" button (under the Cancel button) on the right hand side. Change the color to #000000, then click OK. Type "Sepia 2" into the box beside the color. Click OK.
4. Click Image->Mode->RGB Color to change the image back to RGB color.
5. Click Image->Adjustments->Hue/Saturation. Change Saturation to -40%.

Done!

After you do this once, your Sepia 1 and Sepia 2 colors will automatically show up the next time you open the Duotone Options dialog box. So really, you just have a few quick steps to get the sepia effect. These steps also work in PS CS & CS2, and give the artist more control over the shade of sepia than the "cheat" instructions above.
