Personally, I don't think that's a very good way to do a menu. It's just one big image, which isn't much use on the web unless you cut it up a bit or whatever. You can do all this with CSS, web fonts and the like now, so I'd leave PS out of the equation, unless you just want to make a nice background image for the buttons. In that case, I'd make an image like you linked to, with various states that you can switch around depending on hover etc, using the sprite methods in that thread you linked to.
