It's much easier for B&W than color.
Here's what you do:
Lightroom v2.0:Develop Module
Under the "Tone Curve" Panel, next to the Point Curve drop down menu, choose "negative".
That will show you how it's done for B&W. With color, you'll need to futz around with the HSL sliders to correct for the orange mask.
Or you can photograph your color negatives with a matched bluish-green light source or CC filter to mitigate the orange mask before digital capture.
Hope this works for you. :-)
Nunatek - are you sure? I hadn't noticed this negative option before, and just checked and can't see it.
Doug, the way has always been to adjust one image in Bridge and dragging ACR's point curve so it's a negative. You then import the picture into LR and save the preset, ticking only point curve.
I think nunatak is thinking of Adobe Camera Raw!
There are some presets available at http://inside-lightroom.com/point.php, that are negative curves, you can then adjust parametrically from there.
