OK, so I purchased beersmith (love it) and used it to design my last 2 beers. Here is the problem, It tells me the volume to carb to, not the psi to set my kegerator to. How do I figure that out?

Look on the 'Fermentation' tab when you're on the designer aspect of the brew. Right under the 'Crab Level' item is the pressure to set it to at the temperature you've indicated you'll be keeping it at.

You can also use the carbonation chart found at Print that out and put it near your kegorator for easy reference. I have a copy taped to the side of my brew fridge.

You can also set it to show in the "Select Fields" area on the bottom right section of the main recipe page. Choose the "carbonate with" selection.
